The Mehadrin Kashrut is under the direct supervision of HaRav Yechezkel Sheinfeld (Shlita) from Bnei Brak. His official title is the Community Rabbi of Nachalat Yitzchak in Ramat Aviv Gimmel.
HaRav Sheinfeld is the son in law of the Chief Rabbi of Tel Aviv and the former Chief Rabbi of Israel HaRav HaGaon Yisrael Meir Lau (Shlita) and the brother in law of the Cheif Rabbi of Israel HaRav HaGaon David Baruch (Shlita).
We have specifically assigned a separate kitchen, completely Kashered to meet our high standards and we will have two Mashgichim (supervisors) on premises throughout the entire hotel stay.
The food will be cooked on location every day in order to have the freshest, highest quality gourmet meals for our guests – a Kosher gastronomical experience.
The Mashgichim, under the supervision of HaRav Sheinfeld, are on the hotel premises at all times. In addition there is a Shul (synagogue) with a Sefer Torah.
