Kosher Waldorf Astoria Opens to Rave Reviews

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014

The world’s only strictly kosher Waldorf Astoria in Jerusalem has received rave reviews from those who can afford the luxury five-star hotel that opened for business three months ago.

This past Sukkot holiday, it attracted many wealthy Orthodox Jews from the United States who had previously spent the holiday at the David Citadel, just across the street.

Ilan Brenner, Director of Sales at the Waldorf-Astoria, who previously worked at the Inbal, says that the hotel has attracted travelers from throughout the world and has not experienced any appreciable decline during the recent unrest in Jerusalem. The hotel features both a meat and dairy restaurant in the midst of its ornate lobby with a huge standing clock.

The lobby’s retractable roof is designed to expose guests to the Jerusalem sunshine but was also removed to allow for a huge Sukkah.

Prices at the Waldorf average about $500 per night for a “regular” room and as much as $5000 for the huge Presidential Suite. The hotel is located within a few hundred feet of the David Citadel and just down the block from the celebrated King David Hotel.

Cholov Yisrael and ‘Glatt’ at Wal-Mart!

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

“Kosher” is the new fad, and some of America’s largest discount chains are cashing in.

It was nearly two years ago that a Wal-Mart spokesman revealed that the mega discounter carried kosher products in more than 500 stores, part of a growing trend where Club stores and discount chains like Costco, Sam’s Club, Target, and BJ’s were investing more in kosher.

For Wal-Mart, its emergence as the nation’s largest grocer meant that it was only a matter of time that the mega discounter would challenge supermarkets with an emphasis on kosher. Every summer Wal-Mart becomes a serious competitor in kosher at its Catskills stores where sales are said to approach $3 million for just the 10 weeks of the summer when tens of thousands of Jews descend on the Upstate New York resort area.

Its new store in Skokie, Illinois raises the bar on kosher with hundreds of kosher products, including Cholov Yisrael products and glatt kosher meats.

Most notable in the new store is its rather impressive large signage of kosher aisles, special refrigerators and freezers and even bakery. Its average kosher section in many stores is about 12 square feet compared to 100 square feet for the Skokie store.

Wal-Mart will be taking on the impressive Kosher Marketplace in Jewel-Osco, the city’s largest interdependent exclusive kosher supermarket, Hungarian Kosher and the small Kol Tuv market.

Soon to come will be a new Marriano’s supermarket that has already announced its intention of including a robust kosher section.

Wal-Mart is not alone in its quest for a share of the kosher market. Costco continues to upgrade its kosher offerings as is Target and BJ’s.

While many kosher purveyors expressed delight at the Wal-Mart development, they acknowledge that “it is still very much an experiment for them.”

Airline Glatt Kosher Demand Doubles

Monday, April 8th, 2013

The number of travelers requesting kosher meals continues to rise, and requests for glatt kosher meals has more than doubled in the past five years, according to one source.

Several travel agents reached by KosherToday concur that the number of travelers requesting kosher food has risen throughout the world and the airlines and the airline catering industry are apparently responding.

In Canada, Gate Gourmet, a Swiss-headquartered company that serves 14 major airlines at Trudeau, including Air Canada, recently opened a kosher kitchen supervised by MK of Montreal. Gate Gourmet operates a similar kosher kitchen at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport serving more 15 airlines, including El Al Israel Airlines.

In Montreal, Gate Gourmet is already considering extending its kosher services beyond the airline industry, to perhaps retailers, institutions or even large private events, as it has been doing in Toronto.

In Britain, Hermolis caterers, the exclusive kosher airline service of British Air as well as many other airline carriers from China, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore, is said to have significantly expanded its operations in the past five years.

US Dept. of Agriculture Probing LA Glatt Kosher Scandal

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013

The Doheny Glatt Kosher meat market controversy has reached the federal level, where the Dept. of Agriculture announced it is investigating accusations against Doheny owner Michael Engelmen that he sold meat that was not properly certified as kosher.

Rabbinical councils usually take measures in similar cases, and legal action against improper kosher meat certification is rare.

The controversy hit the headlines last week when a private investigator handed over to the Dept. of Agriculture videos and other material incriminating Engelman.

The investigator, Eric Agaki, said he launched his own probe several months ago after rabbis approached him with the claim that the prices for Doheny Glatt meat was “way too cheap.” Agaki then discovered that workers for Doheny allegedly put improperly certified meat in empty Glatt kosher boxes.

Abeles and Heymann Merges with Israeli Company Yehiam

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

Disclaimer: This reporter thinks that Abeles and Heymann makes the best Glatt Kosher franks around.

A & H Products (Abeles and Heymann), Inc. has merged with Yehiam USA, LLC. a subsidiary of Maadaney Yehiam LTD Israel, to form a new company. The new company will be called Abeles & Heymann, LLC. located in Hillside, NJ.

Abeles & Heymann was started in 1954 by Oscar Abeles and his nephew Leopold Heymann. Their product line consists of premium Glatt Kosher Deli items.

The company was sold in 1997 to Mr. Seth Leavitt and Mr. David Flamholz. Over the last 15 years they contributed to the growth of the company into markets normally not penetrated by the Glatt Kosher industry. A & H Products are available nationwide, in major U.S. sporting venues, supermarket chains, Costco and even in Puerto Rico.

A & H established a reputation as the venerable provision company in the Glatt kosher industry under the auspices of Leavitt and Flamholz. Maadaney Yehiam was founded in 1969 as the manufacturing branch of Kibbutz Yehiam located in Northern Israel.

More than 40 years later the Israeli company employs over 150 people and produces over 15 million lbs. annually, of high quality Ready To Eat deli meats and sausages in a state-of-the-art facility.

Today, Yehiam LTD Israel is a manufacturer of beef and poultry items in Israel and exports a full line of poultry products to the United States under the Hod Golan brand name.

Yehiam and A & H, saw an opportunity to benefit from synergies in the industry and brought together two solid companies. Mr. Leavitt is quoted as saying “The strength of Yechiam in the Glatt Kosher Poultry market coupled with A & H’s strong brand recognition in the United States leads the owners of The Company to feel positive of their new venture.”

Seth Leavitt told JewishPress.com that “with this merger, Abeles and Heymann will be able to grow exponentially, and increase its market share significantly.”
