"Shirat HaYam Kashrut's" app is a kashrut's inspectors' monitoring android application for the supervisors of the Ministry of religious services. This app allows its two user groups, inspectors and supervisors, to report and track in real-time after their employees' daily kashrut reports, at any time and place, to ensure operational efficiency and enable real-time monitoring of kashrut’s status in businesses and handling reports of lack’s of deficiency.

UX/UI Design


Aug. 2019 - Jan. 2020




In order to track kashrut’s status in businesses by their supervision, and to track their employees’ daily kashrut’s reports, inspectors, supervisors, and kashrut’s department directors in the Chief Rabbinate religious councils in Israel, had to use external tools such as paid apps, Excel spreadsheets, and phone calls.

These tools cause the inspectors to endlessly chase after reliable information from their employees, spend hours on inserting tedious data to those externals tools, or spend a large amount of money on a third-party organization or product in a vain attempt to better manage their time. Furthermore, most of the work is done remotely while most of the data are on the office computer, therefore the inspectors mostly can’t respond or get notified in real-time.

One of the greatest challenges for supervisors is the credibility and reliability of the data they get from their employees’ daily kashrut’s reports such as visit time, report GPS location, or even some “concealed” details that are left out deliberately from the report.

Project Goals

Improve kashrut’s department directors in the Chief Rabbinate religious efficiency
Kashrut’s department employees will reports in real-time with higher credibility

Research Methods

Own experience
At first, I've held the position of a senior instructional designer for the Ministry of religious services core system “Shirat Hayam”, a cross-departmental system, which includes kashrut department modal. As part of my daily work routine, I taught approximately 50 kashrut department’s inspectors, spread all over the country, about the relevant modal in the system, doing so, I have learned their daily work routine, their needs, and main struggles.

Application committee
A dedicated committee was formed inside the government ministry with relevant representatives. This committee took place every two weeks for a half year discussing their needs and issues in the current process of kashrut supervision from the point of view of the future users, the religious councils, and the ministry.

User interviews
I’ve advised our PM to expand the research and to interview the future users (inspectors, supervisors, and kashrut’s department directors) to gain a better understanding of their actual needs from all point of the ministry hierarchy.

One of the significant realizations from those interviews was their need for a general report, to help them get a full understanding of their businesses kashrut’s status, each day and each week. While until now they were using primitive ways: excel and manual searching for specific reports.

Prototype testing
After I've created a first high fidelity mockup in Figma, I've conducted prototype testing with eight individuals to get initial feedback about the initial UI and some of the features.

One of the significant realizations from this stage is the importance of visual indication for a report with issues requiring the manager's intervention.

General Flow

I've created a general flow for each user group, inspectors and supervisors, to understand the structure of the website.

Initial Sketches

After I created some handwriting Sketches, I started sketching some designs in Figma, which I never know before, to see what ideas I can craft.
Here are some examples of the iterations in Figma:

Mini-Design System

I had created a mini-system that allowed us to quickly access the exact font styles used across the site. Though it would be small, my mini-system would empower us to focus on the experience and usability, rather than having to guess at colors and font styles.


Segoe UI is a sans-serif typeface that is being used in Microsoft products and designed to improve the consistency in how users see all text across all languages. Due to users' low digital literacy, their previous acquaintance with this typeface will help them adopt this app.

Primary and grays

This color scheme was inspired by the Ministry of religious service' core web system 'Shirat Hayam' color scheme.

Very dark blue
Vivid yellow

Secondary colors

To make a visual difference between an item to handle, an item in progress, and a finished item, I chose to add red, orange, and green – the traffic lights of UX,
to the colors scheme, not because they fit (they are not), but because they are actionable.

Report Component

High-Fidelity Design

Keeping users’ needs and pain-points in mind, I settled on a final version of the design, creating a high-fidelity prototype.

Entry reports flow

Users can report entrance in a business, a cluster, or a business in a cluster, under their supervision on that day, or report entrance in businesses from a general list by adding an explanation on the report.
On this entrance report, the app creates an open report, which is displayed on the Home screen, and sends the user's time and location to the server.

Handle open reports

Reports are built from a task section, which contains custom tasks by business' type, and from an attachments section. In critical kashrut issues, theuser can mark the report and redirect it to his manager for handling.

What's next

Add employees' reports to the kashrut supervisor work plan
Help supervisors to control their work plan from the app by adding an “Add to work plan” button in Employees’ Previous Reports.


I learned how to balance the contradictory needs of the two main user groups, employees and managers, that are using the same app.

Also, this project involved asignificant number of people and organizations, in which each had itsinterests, which in some cases, has been conflicted with the user’s needs.
