+972 Magazine has got its hands on the official hotel rating of Jewishness devised by Israel’s Chief Rabbi Jonah Metzger [Heb]. The new rating will help religious customers choose hotels with a more Jewish environment.
1 Star of David – “Gentile” hotels. Serve traif. Don’t even touch with a lulav.
2 Stars of David – “Distant Jewish roots” hotels. Kosher, but the kitchen may employ Arabs. Not recommended.
3 Stars of David – “Secular Jewish” hotels. Kosher. No Arabs in kitchen – but they do clean the pools. Let’s face it, you get what you pay for.
4 Stars of David – “Observant Jewish” hotels. Shabbat candle lighting in the lobby, no Arabs – yet women still walk around freely. Good only if there’s no other option in the area.
5 Stars of David – The special Jackie Mason “Too Jewish” rating. Complete separation between men and impure beings of lesser status. No gentiles allowed under any circumstances. Free God-fi in all rooms.
