All religions have their sacred cows and holy wars. None are more colorful or intriguing than what goes on in the burgeoning world of kosher food supervision. This book tells a colorful tale of religion, politics, and filthy lucre to present a spellbinding picture of canons and curiosities as well as a sobering examination of the limitations of law, the vagaries of religious disputes, and the verities of business ethics. From intrigues in the abattoirs to brawls in the boardrooms and shenanigans in the supermarkets, here is a compelling chronicle that should be of interest to readers regardless of their faiths or food preferences.
