Rabbinate will certify first female kashrut supervisors

Finally, the rabbinate appears ready to grant approval to women who want to work in a field that's excellent for them:
The Chief Rabbinate is gearing up to certify the first ever women kashrut supervisers, ending a two-year battle led by the religious women's movement Emunah.

The rabbinate was expected to hold a kashrut certification exam sometime this week and, for the first time in history, women will be able to participate and apply.
I should hope this time it's for real and will take place with an all-women class. The Jerusalem Post also says that defeating the rabbinate's monopoly would help make the business less expensive and make it a freer market.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
