In Israel, QR codes are ensuring that people are eating kosher food.
The Chief Rabbinate of Tel Aviv has started giving out kashrut certificates to the restaurants in the city. These certificates come with a QR code printed on them.
When you scan the QR code, you will see the restaurant’s name and address. In addition, it will tell you if the restaurant serves regular kosher food or follows the more stringent rules of mehadrin. It will also tell you the dairy, parve and meat status of the establishment and the date when the certificate was given to the restaurant and when it expires.
Lastly, it will give you the phone number of the kashrut supervisor who is responsible for certifying the restaurant.
As you know, eating kosher food is very important for the Jewish because it forms part of the Taryag Mitzvot, which is a list of more than 600 laws that they must comply with according to their religion.
The QR codes are a very good way to ensure that they are in fact in compliance with that covenant.
QR codes on food are nothing new. It has been used to certify the safety of certain food, including where it came from, whether it is organic or not, and when it was harvested and packed. But these kosher QR codes take on a religious significance as well when used in this manner. And that is certainly a first in our book!
It just goes to show that QR codes are very flexible in that it could be used for different purposes. What’s more, QR codes can help bring information to people in a convenient and cost-efficient manner. Just one scan could give you all the information you want about a restaurant and its food, or a product and its benefits.
