about this item

Trying to draw a line between unwarranted cynicism and legitimate criticism of the kosher business, Lasson examines the persistent perception by many people in the kosher meat industry that their business involves two percent Jewish religious law and 98 percent ego, money, and politics. (How is that line holding up?) In sections on forbidden food, sacred cows, and holy wars, he discusses aspects such as from community regulation to big business, the limits of law in regulating religious rules, kashrus and the courts, law and politics in a cut-throat business, kosher meat scandals in America and abroad, and oddities and excesses.
