Holy Land Restaurant in Oakland has decided to discontinue kosher supervision


IN-this-issue

After lengthy consideration, the ownership of Holy Land Restaurant in Oakland has decided to discontinue kosher supervision.  Unfortunately, the need for a Jewish owner to be closed on Shabbat and Holidays impacted business too much and the owner felt that it was impossible to continue after so many years of effort trying to make this work.  I would like to emphasize that she has acted honorably throughout; there were no breaches or specific kashrut concerns that led to this decision.  However, please note that there will not be any kosher supervision whatsoever going forward on the meat, the other ingredients or the restaurant's processes and cooking.
