Badatz (Hebrew: בד״ץ), a Hebrew acronym for "Beit Din Tzedek," or "Court of Justice," is a modern term used for a major Jewish rabbinical court.

In Israel, the term 'Badatz' is often used to refer to the Badatz of the Edah HaChareidis; however, it is not the title of this group, and other batei din (rabbinical courts) use the title as well. It is often used in the context of hechsherim (kashrut certification).

Rabbinical courts that use this title include:

  • Badatz Edah HaChareidis from Jerusalem [1]
  • Badatz Igud Rabbonim of Rabbi Osher Yaakov Westheim [2]
  • Badatz Chassam Sofer from Bnei Brak
  • Badatz Mehadrin of Rabbi Simcha HaKohen Kook and Rabbi Avraham Rubin
  • Badatz Machzikei HaDas of Belz [3]
  • Badatz Beit Yosef of Rabbi Ovadia Yosef
  • Badatz Agudas Yisroel[4]
  • Badatz Yoreh Deah of Rabbi Shlomo Machpoud [5]
  • Badatz Chug Chassam Sofer of Rabbi A. Wosner [6]
  • Badatz Of Toronto of Rabbi Amram Assayag [7]
  • Badatz Rabbinical Court based in Lakewood N.J. with Courtrooms around the U.S. [8]
