The Executive Council of Australian Jewry (ECAJ) and the Organisation of Rabbis Australasia (ORA) have made their submission available on the ECAJ website.

For those who do not want to read the entire document, the report in the AJN (20/5/2010) was accurate, and the submission proposes that ORA be given legal rights to define which foods can be labelled, ‘kosher.’ If ORA are not to be given these rights, ECAJ and ORA prefer that the status quo be maintained and that ‘kosher’ is not given any legal definition.

The submission does not say how ORA will decide which kashrut certificates will be approved.

Criticism of the submission can be found on Galus Australis, the Sensible Jew, and AJN watch.
