Kosher Isle Enforcement sign now

There are very few places in America where you dont see a supermarket. New Haven county in Connecticut is no exception. For anyone who is unfamiliar, a supermarket has isles and different sections for different kinds of food. Meats are kept together, seafood is kept together, baked goods are kept together, frozen items are kept in freezers of course, and other things have very specific spots. A good deal of supermarkets have an isle dedicated to kosher food. Kosher food is processed specifically for the Jewish community. In order to bare a kosher symbol, which may be one of over a dozen things printed as small as desired on packaging, the product must be blessed by a rabbi. The rabbi will go to the factory where the item is made once a year, and bless the factory, for quite a large sum. The cost of the rabbis visit is worked into the price of kosher items. Kosher symbols dont stop where the isle does, over the years, more and more kosher products, which include non-edibles such as tin foil and saran wrap, have been slinking out of their isle into the general food sections of supermarkets. The problem with this is that most people arent even aware that the food they are buying is kosher, and thusly not aware that they are giving their money to the Jewish community. There is not one singular kosher symbol, and some of the markings are quite bizarre, to the point that a typical person would not associate them with the word kosher, at all, such as the letter U in a circle. The Jewish population of our area is lower than in many other parts of the country. It is unfair that Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, Pagans, and other non-Jews should have to pick cautiously through products to know where their money is going. We dont force the Jewish people to eat Kosher food, it is their choice, so if they make the choice to eat kosher food, they should be the ones seeking it out. The kosher food isle made things morally bearable for both the Jewish and non-Jewish communities, Jews could find safe food without having to squint at packages, and non-Jews could keep their money focused on what they believe and want to forward in society. If you understand the benefits of keeping kosher food separated from non-kosher food in supermarkets, please sign this petition.
