Skip to comments.Jews face having to find Passover foods without Stop & Shop

The Stop & Shop at 112 Amity Road, which was open Friday but picketed by striking workers, offers a large selection of foods that are kosher for Passover because of the Jewish population in and near the Westville section, which isnt as large as it once was but still is sizable.
Im lucky in that I happen to have done a lot of my Passover shopping. To buy the rest I wont cross the picket line, said Rachel Bashevkin of Westville, who is on the board of Congregation Beth El-Keser Israel. Recommended Video
She said the Amity Stop & Shop offers both essential things and then really delicious desserts and sweet things, with a large segment of the store devoted to kosher foods. The have two rows the entire depth of the store and another table, Bashevkin said.
Bashevkin said the strike and the decision of whether to cross the picket line is especially significant for Jews approaching Passover, Pesach in Hebrew, because the holiday is about our rejoicing in freedom from enslavement but a message that we also need to free others and were eating this festival meal and we need to feed others.
The message of Passover is to me totally [that] you dont celebrate your holiday at the expense of other people, she said.
Rabbi Jon-Jay Tilsen of Beth El-Keser Israel said in an email, Any food purchased by crossing a picket line or from scab workers is not kosher for Passover. He said it is a matter of well-established Jewish law.

Am glad that tooth area eased off. Was worried would have to kosher before 8
I really want to know, just what is the Jewish law for/against unionization? I think I missed that part of the Torah.
Probably one of those SJW first, religion later Synagogues.
Went by one today and their were picket lines. Haven’t seen picket lines in a while.
It’s in the new New Testament, written in English in the last few decades. Rabbi Christine explained it all.
Stop and Shop was founded by Jews, I believe.
This sounds just a little fishy to me.
I mean, Jews can’t get food supplies in Massachusetts? Oh yeah, I forgot, they have no cultural heritage of being able to do retail operations, or obtaining the necessities of life under adverse conditions.
If I’m not mistaken, the Jews of Warsaw were able to celebrate Passover until they were in the final stages of being wiped out by the SS/Wehrmacht.
The United Food and Commercial Workers International can do what the German military could not?
I imagine that they will survive this...
Are Jews too stupid to use Amazon?
I must say that I am terribly inconvenienced by the closing of the two Stop & Shops near my residence.
Drop the prices by 15% and theyll cross the lines.
Thats a joke!!!
Good question, what does the Torah say about labor unions??
Clearly they are extrapolating somehow, to get to the conclusion that one must support labor union efforts as part of being a good Jew.
Boo F’n hoo
Rabbi Jon-Jay Tilsen would probably have gotten along well with Rosa Luxemburg.
“To buy the rest I wont cross the picket line,” so Passover isn’t THAT important then? Lib self loathing Israel haters? Probably not happy that Bibi won again either.
Are there no Whole Foods in New Haven? Are there no Big Y’s?
I get it,
Old playground saying (from the 30’s)
“Matzohs, Matzohs, 2 for five
That’s what keeps the Jews alive”
Not PC, but just putting it out there for historical purposes.
