The Kosher Racket

EDITOR’S NOTE: This is a fabulous scheme, and Benedict XVI’s elder brothers are getting bloody rich at it. Granted, the kosher racket pales in comparison to the Shoah business, but it’s impressive, nonetheless.

According to Menachem Lubinsky, editor of “Kosher Today” and owner of Lubicon Marketing and Consulting, there are 10.5 million kosher consumers in the United States, 10,650 companies in the United States whose products are under kosher supervision, and 98,000 kosher certified products. Not to mention bakeries, restaurants and kosher markets in many cities and towns throughout the country. And it is the “mashgiach” who has the important job of “watching over” factories, caterers, restaurants, butchers and kosher stores to make sure “everything is kosher.”

According to Lubinsky of Lubicon, “The dollar value of the kosher market is $10.5 billion.”
