A new Israeli hechsher ('kosher' supervision) has been started to supervise business practices and protect workers from abuse.
It requires employers to meet seven requirements. The first six are already law in Israel. The seventh is to provide handicap accessibility.
The hechsher – started by a group of 27-year-old lay people – is endorsed by leading religious zionist rabbis.
There is at this point no haredi (ultra-Orthodox) participation. From what we have seen of haredi business practices, this is no surprise. One would be hard-pressed to find a haredi business that meets current legal requirements let alone has hanicap accessibility.
One also must wonder how this type of hechsher would work in America.
If honesty was required, it is doubtful whether any kosher supervising agencies including the OU could pass muster.
