Rome Jewish Community President also Sent Pig’s Head

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

The president of the Rome Jewish community revealed that he too had been sent the severed head of a pig about 10 days after pig heads were sent to Rome’s main synagogue, the Israeli embassy and a museum with an exhibit on Jewish culture in January.

Riccardo Pacifici made the revelation during testimony Wednesday at the trial of seven right-wing extremists accused of violating Italy’s anti-racism, anti-fascism laws by scrawling anti-Semitic graffiti on city walls. Pacifici said he had not alerted the media to the incident earlier in order not to give it attention.

At the close of his testimony, according to local media, Pacifici and one of the defendants got into a shouting match that nearly came to blows. The reports said that defendant Stefano Schiavelli had verbally “provoked” Pacifici in a way that prompted Pacifici to accuse him of threatening him. The reports said Pacifici was escorted from the court by his bodyguards, repeatedly stating that he was “not afraid.”

Kosher Tidbits from around the Web – April 1, 2008

Red Sox fans rejoice – kosher certified hot dogs are coming to Fenway this year courtesy of a Hot Nosh vending machine.

The new President of Rome’s Jewish community is interested in building a new synagogue and expanding the availability of kosher food. Riccardo Pacifici is also hoping that the so-called “invisible Jews” in Italy will make themselves more a part of the community.

The in-demand Kosher for Passover Coke can now be found on the shelves. For those of you who don’t follow this trend, many people prefer the taste of the pre-1985 coke. This version has sucrose as opposed to the high fructose corn syrup, which is found in Coke today. Look for the yellow bottle cap stamped with the words Kosher for Passover.

And this year Kosher for Passover Pepsi can be found on shelves as well. It seems that there is a very big difference in taste, with the Pesach one tasting more natural and crisp.
