Group stamps kosher establishments with ethical seals

RIVERDALE - An Orthodox Jewish group is hoping to spread its message of ethics to kosher restaurants in the Bronx.

The group, called Uri L?Tzedek, grants restaurants special Tav HaYosher seals that certify the establishment treats its workers properly and uses ethical employment practices.

Uri L?Tzedek says the movement was prompted by recent scandals in the kosher food industry.

"We talk to workers, and we look at payroll records and we found workers in kosher restaurants that are sometimes paid $2 or $3 an hour," says Shmuly Yanklowitz, of Uri L?Tzedek.

Five of the 40 establishments that have the Tav HaYosher seals are in the Bronx.
