Uri L′Tezedek


Launched by Uri L'Tzedek, the Tav HaYosher is a local, grassroots initiative to bring workers, restaurant owners and community members together to create just workplaces in kosher restaurants.

Thousands of workers in New York City are paid below minimum wage.   Even more are denied their legal rights to overtime pay and time off. Workers are often subjected to unsafe and abusive working conditions.

There are three standards that a restaurant must meet to qualify for the Tav HaYosher:          

The right to fair pay.

The right to fair time.

The right to a safe work environment








It is critical we stand up for tzedek and
mishpat as a Jewish community!
