Jewish Kosher Justice

Uri L’Tzedek literally means, “Wake up for Justice”. Tzedek, though connotes a particular kind of Jewish justice, though not a justice that deals only with Jews. It is a sense that Jews have to pursue justice worldwide that was instilled in our people ever since the giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai. The organization, headed by Shmuly Yanklowitz, pursues many causes, including a “moral kosher stamp” called the Tav HaYosher loosely translated as the “mark of integrity” which aims to ensure that the working conditions at any food production company are just and fair and do not exploit the workers.
