INDEPENDENT COMMISSION OF ENQUIRY INTO THE PRICE OF KOSHER MEAT AND CHICKEN
The Chief Rabbi, the Beth Din and the Union of Orthodox Synagogues of South Africa are supportive of the communityâ€™s extreme concern over the high prices of kosher meat and chicken and will be setting up an independent commission to investigate the situation.
The commission will be established as soon as possible and will include relevant experts. The community will be notified as soon as they have accepted their appointments and the mandate and terms of reference of the commission have been drawn up. The above bodies undertake to report back to our community at the conclusion of the process.
The South African Jewish community is privileged to have one of the most reputable and well run Kashrut infrastructures in the world. We are determined to maintain our high standards, and at the same time to make keeping kosher as affordable to our community as possible.
