ok, so years ago I took a course with a bunch of people who ran small factories in israel . one of the guys was the owner of a meat factory. one day we each talked about the problems that we had that were specific to us.

so he told a story " I have to get my meat inside city limits by 8 before trafic starts, so I need to load the trucks by 7. we start killing at 3, 12 slaugherers and 12 mashgicheem. then, every few minutes a mashgiach tells his slaughterer to stop because the knife is too dull, so I go over and give them each 50 sheckels, and they start again. this goes on for hours, until each team gets a few 50 sheckel notes"

Totally believable. Every time my family has had to hire someone for rituals they'ce constantly been on the take.

GT, I agree with your comment about the wine, and consider something similar to be behind many of the Jewish laws, such as wearing kippot and not eating pork. I.e., don't do what THOSE guys do, or wear what they wear, etc.

Come to think of it, shatnez was tailor made to keep Jews away from those yummy WASP gals.

he is bribing them not to sharpen their knives? that is very disheartening indeed. frown.gif

I don't understand this thread at all.

We have plenty of Chinese food here and many Chinese restaurants, don't know if they're kosher though.

Yeh, keywords "Chinese" and "China". LOL

I've seen Chinese restaurants that are "halal" 清真, becuase they sometimes put that on the menus. Sometimes it's printed on food packaging as well. But never "kosher" 合犹太人戒律.

I have been told by two mashgiach that one need only rinse them off as they are non-absorbent. Speaking of mashgiach, some rabbis will not grant their hechsher if the mashgiach is female.
The "Practically?" comment came from an 87 year old Jewish lady that told me she accepted the same glass plates were kosher but that her eyes just told her it was wrong as she needed to see two different patterns so she would know things had not been mixed, therefore glass plates were unacceptable to her.

I'm pretty sure glass utensils may be used for both though there is a custom of not cooking in both such as in a pyrex dish.

She may be technically correct. The amount of shellfish is nullified by the relative amount of other kosher food.

No, though doesn't mean I would eat there.
