Abeles & Heymann, LLC. The premier manufacture of Glatt Kosher Hotdogs has begun its donation campaign in conjunction with Masbia. Over the next four weeks, Abeles & Heymann will donate $10,000.00 worth of hotdogs to Masbia Soup Kitchen.

Masbia soup kitchen network serves hot dinners five nights a week out of three locations in New York City in addition to distributing once a week take-home grocery packages. Last year Masbia served close to 500,000 meals to hungry men, women and children. Masbia opened its doors in 2005, with the prime objective of offering nourishing nutritious meals with dignity to those in need.

“It is not every day that we are able to offer donated Kosher meat in our take-home grocery packages,” said Alexander Rapaport, Executive Director of Masbia. “Donations of Kosher meat are hard to come by and we are very grateful to Abeles & Heymann for being able to offer meat to our clients over the next few weeks.”

Seth Leavitt, co-owner of Abeles & Heymann, said, “We are proud that, as we enter our 60th year of business, we are able to make a donation to such a worthy cause.”

The founding family’s high standards for quality and authenticity, and its mission, to provide the finest kosher deli products, continue to this day.

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.”

Tiny Steps Towards a Big Goal

Sunday, March 18th, 2012

Often, when I return home to Israel after a speaking tour in North America, I am asked by my Israeli friends: “Nu, did you get people to make Aliyah?”

I explain that I prefer not to talk much about Aliyah while I am abroad. I try to get Jews to reawaken their love for the homeland, connect with the life in Israel and I find that the issue of Aliyah often distances my audience. Though I am a firm believer in the in-gathering of the exiles, when I speak to Jews around the world, I am trying to bridge worlds, not drive them apart.

Indeed, the biggest schism  in the Jewish world today is the great Atlantic Divide. Six million Jews live in North America, and six million live across the ocean in Israel. The Jewish nation exists in worlds apart: One attends Liberal Arts colleges, the other fights in the army; one speaks English, the other Hebrew; they read different books and watch different TV shows. The Jewish people’s geographic and cultural divide can easily become an unbridgeable gap.

North American Jews are concerned and have taken real steps to bridge the Atlantic Divide through one-year Yeshiva programs in Israel, gap year studies in Israeli universties, internship programs, and, of course, Birthright-Israel, the amazing project that has changed the lives of tens of thousands young Jews.

But still, it’s not enough. 80% of North American Jews have never been to Israel, and most Israelis have no connection to American Jewish life. That is why Israelis, people like outspoken author A.B. Yehoshua, are worried about their North American Jewish brothers and sisters. Israelis are afraid to lose their American family to assimilation, and they are afraid of growing apart.

While A.B. Yehoshua may be right about the problem, his recent harsh words (in which he calls American Jews “partial Jews” for not living in Israel) do not help much. There are no partial Jews, we are a family, a tribe, a nation, and we simply cannot allow our people to become disconnected. We should never talk down to Jews, we should talk up, inspire, and heal. To bring the family together, you need to talk in the language of love.

And you also need vision. Our people need a star to guide us toward one goal that will eventually bring us back together.

What is this vision?

The vision of a rebuilt Jerusalem is one which our people have shared ever since we were dispossessed of our land 2,000 years ago. From Addis Ababa to LA, from Kabul to Vienna, our people have always proclaimed “Next Year in a Rebuilt Jerusalem!” No matter where we are on the globe, no matter our persecution or comfort, we have had only one homeland and one capital to which our heart has belonged.

To foster that vision, and to make it applicable in our lives, we need to get behind the idea of mass Aliyah.

“But wait?? Didn’t you just tell us not to  preach Aliyah because it’s divisive?”

Let me explain: There is the grand ideal of making Aliyah, that is, moving to Israel, and that issue may be divisive. But the word “Aliyah” in Hebrew also refers to the process of going up and there are many steps in the staircase before you get to the landing. And that is exactly what we have to do – take steps towards our united goal with each step being a mini-Aliyah. Those steps can be big or small, but they are steps nonetheless. Deciding to drink only Israeli wine on Shabbat is a type of Aliyah. Putting up a poster of Jerusalem in your house, or a flag, is a type of Aliyah. Sending your kids on Birthright, or to studies in Israel is an Aliyah. Buying real-estate in Israel is definitely an Aliyah.

Aliyah means that we, as a nation, take whatever steps we can towards Jewish unity by recognizing the centrality of Israel in our national life.

And here is another example of mini-Aliyah which is very pertinent in this season:

If you have the budget to vacation this Passover, you certainly have many wonderful alternatives to choose from around the world -

“Celebrate Passover at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples. Rich in tradition and excellence.”

“The Best Passover Vacations Under the Sun are in Mexico, Arizona and Florida. Glatt Kosher.”

“5 Deluxe Passover Resorts – in Florida, New York, Arizona & Italy with Leisure Time Tours.”

“Magical Passover 2012 Vacation in Orlando, Florida at the Luxurious Doubletree by Hilton Orlando at SeaWorld.”

These are great places, no doubt, and I totally understand the need to take one’s few precious vacation days and get away from the stress. However, your Passover vacation is also an opportunity to make a mini-Aliyah with your family and to arrive at the international Passover hub – Jerusalem. The term Aliyah actually comes from the concept of going up to Jerusalem three times a year during the Festivals, so coming to Israel on Passover is definitely an Aliyah!

Nothing shows our values as a nation more then the way we celebrate the Holiday of Freedom. When we choose Jerusalem over Orlando we strengthen the bond of brotherhood within the Jewish Nation, our core values shine through, and our children imbibe it. The world, too, notices when we put Jerusalem ahead of other destinations and it strengthens our nation’s claim to the land.

So this year, let us start making Aliyah as a nation, lets bridge the great Atlantic Divide, and let us make good on what we said at last year’s Seder: “Next year in Jerusalem”.
