Rav Lt.-Colonel Gil Gilad was appointed head of the Kashrus Branch of the IDF Rabbinate.
Lt.-Col. Amir Zuzut retired from the IDF Rabbinate after serving as head of the Kashrus Branch for two years, and Rabbi Gilad will replace him.
Rabbi Gilad served in the past as the rabbi of the Base 1, Officers’ Training Base, and the commander of the 162nd Division in the Southern Command.
IDF Chief Rabbi Brigadier-General Rabbi Eyal Karim, said during the ceremony that “Rabbi Goren began to observe the kashrus of 36 kitchens, and today we are firmly guarding kashrus throughout IDF bases.”
