The Certification Process
The Magen Tzedek Commission has established a standards and certification program with the goal of bringing the Jewish commitment to ethics and social justice directly into the marketplace and the home.
The achievement of this certification by an applicant entity will indicate that the applicant entity meets the requirements that have been established by the Magen Tzedek Commission and published in the document “Certification Standards for the Magen Tzedek Service Mark”. The Magen Tzedek certification program aims to promote confidence that entities which have this credential operate at the high level of ethical and social responsibility associated with the Magen Tzedek standards and methodology.
Once an entity has implemented any necessary improvements, it can earn a certificate attesting to its compliance with the Magen Tzedek Certification Standard. This certification is awarded by certification bodies that are accredited by Social Accountability Accreditation Services (SAAS) in conjunction with the Magen Tzedek Commission.
