In a surprising move to many Jerusalemites, two eateries in the south of the city summarily lost their kosher certification right after Passover. But within a day, both Caffit on Emek Refaim and Roladin in the Hadar Mall had their certifications returned by the Jerusalem Rabbinate.

According to a letter from the rabbinate dated April 19, the original branch of Caffit, a popular spot which has been around for 30 years, had its kashrut certificate revoked until further notice.
