Israel cuts power of ultra-Orthodox Jews over kosher

While it is estimated that two-thirds of Jewish Israelis remain kosher to some extent, many do not adhere to the strict standards of the ultra-Orthodox. Retailers pay more than $ 100 million a year to religious councils whose inspectors spend nearly 6.5 million hours ensuring that food, pots, pantries and ovens all comply, according to an IDI study. Most of these payments go to the ultra-Orthodox, making the application of kashrut – the set of Jewish laws relating to, among other things, dietary practices – a major source of income.
