Kashrut

About our Kosher Cruises: Kosher Travelers

Combined we are the world's leading Kosher Tour operator with over 30 years experience, having satisfied thousands of Clients from USA, Israel, France, Belgium, Switzerland, UK , Mexico, Australia, South Africa on dozens of Cruises. We provide four gourmet meals a day in our own separate area of the dining room. All our meals are freshly prepared under the Management of  our Executive Chefs aboard each ship.

The Kashrut is under the strict supervision of Rabbi Nehemiah Rotenberg. Raised in Jerusalem and educated at the Ponevezh Yeshiva in Bnei Brak. After his marriage, he studied at the Beit Midrash of Horaah at the “Kol Ya'akov” Yeshiva, as well as with the Rishon LeZion, Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu, z"l He was ordained by the Chief Rabbinate of Israel. Rabbi Nehemiah Rotenberg came to Vienna to serve as Rabbi in the community in 2002. During his tenure as Rabbi, he was the head of the "Zehut" Beit Midrash, and during his work in the community he dealt extensively in matters of Kashrus as a representative of many Batai Din (בד"ץ) around the world. Before 2002, while living in Israel he has dealt with kashrus issues and ran a weekly radio program on kashrus. During the past decade Rabbi Rotenberg’s main specialty is turning hotels throughout Europe to be able to provide food of the highest Kashrus level for Pesach and the summer months. Kashrus of a hotel is a distinct job and requires much expertise in the field, familiarity with the industrial kitchens, the form of Kashering an industrial kitchen, and of course extensive knowledge of kosher food products in Europe. His Kashrut team are all hand picked and well versed with many years of experience. Rabbi Rothenberg has spent many years developing the community Kosher list in Vienna for hundreds of food products sold in large retail chains throughout the Europe. This knowledge is very important and gives hotel operators in Europe the ability to bring local products and not need to import from Israel or the USA. His Kashrut experience has further expanded into the Kosher Cruises and he the Rav Hamachshir for Eddie’s Kosher Travel/Destinations Cruise packages. Rabbi Rotenberg works throughout the year to obtain Kosher meat and poultry throughout Europe at the highest kosher level, at the best price. For every shechita Rabbi Rotenberg sends a special overseer on his behalf in order to ensure that the shipment of meat from the start will arrive at the hotel with the utmost supervision.   Rabbi Rottenberg currently serves as part time Rabbi of Savion community in Israel # Further enquiries pls contact Rabbi Nechemia Rottenberg on +972 584038543 / +436889171489 or nr@zehut.org
