Kosher Tidbits from around the Web – November 3, 2008

Monday, November 3rd, 2008

I was surprised to read that Ashkelon Academic College requires that every item of food students wish to bring into their rooms be approved by an “approved rabbinic authority,” even if it is prepared at home.

And speaking of college campuses, University of Miami has a new on-campus glatt kosher restaurant, The Oasis.

If you find yourself in the Philadelphia area, you might want to check out Maccabeam Restaurant. The review I read said it “represents the best in Israeli cuisine.”

Tastes and Traditions, a new cookbook – and fundraiser – for the New Haven Jewish Community Center is available for purchase here.

Drake’s(R) Snack Cakes are celebrating 120 years of snacking. At one time, it was thought that Drakes were the only kosher snack cakes. Once under the Triangle K, today Drakes are certified kosher under the OU.

Finally, The Times-Picayune has an interesting review of two of New Orleans kosher restaurants, Casablanca and Kosher Cajun New York Deli and Grocery.

Question: Anti-Israel activism has become all too common on college campuses across the country. Have you experienced any of that?


 

 

 


Personally, I have never experienced any anti-Israel activity on campus. I think, however, that it is important for college campuses to provide an open forum for students and faculty to express their views no matter what they happen to be. Discussion cannot be one-sided.

No. This place is very pro-Israel. I’ve taken political science courses and class discussions were never anti-Zionist when the subject of the Middle East came up. The only issue we do face on campus is that all ethnic groups are segregated; people don’t engage with other groups as much as they should.

No. I’ve heard about this happening at other colleges like Columbia, but I think it’s more a reflection of the professors’ attitudes toward Israel than the students’. There needs to be an open dialogue on campus. People need to know they can express their feelings. Because Brooklyn has a large Jewish presence, anti-Zionist rallies aren’t that common here.

This is not an issue on our campus. I think anti-Zionist rallies and demonstrations are more prevalent outside New York. I have friends in Concordia College in Montreal, which has a large Muslim population, and there has been some anti-Jewish behavior there. A friend from the University of Connecticut once reported seeing some anti-Jewish graffiti.
