JEWISH UNITY REGARDLESS OF AFFILIATION STATEMENT FOR FISCAL YEAR ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2019
This statement is made in response to the recent waves of discrimination against Reform, Conservative and Orthodox Jews in Israel based on religious affiliation and/or ethnicity and outlines the efforts Kotel.tv has taken and is continuing to take to ensure that discrimination is not present in our supply chain and to promote Jewish unity.
Kotel.tv has a zero-tolerance policy regarding discrimination. Discrimination includes mocking, denying attention, denying entry and victimizing. We are committed to operating professionally, ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and to putting effective systems and controls in place to safeguard against any form of discrimination taking place within our supply chain.
More than photographers, more than products … Kotel.tv is a family brand. Our brand is world-renowned; it is a Jewish household name. Through https://kotel.tv, Kotel.tv is an Israeli company that sells photography and videography services, bar and bat mitzvah event planning services and custom Judaica products and gifts.
We are committed to providing superior quality service and products to customers.
