Where's the (Kosher) Beef?
In today's breaking news about the scarcity of kosher beef around the country, this local connection: Dallas-based A.D. Rosenblatt Kosher Meats, run by COO Yaakov Rosenblatt, has had to up its production to meet the meat demand, going from three days a week to five. Also contained within the piece is this opening sentence available to any aspiring Jewish novelist worth his or her kosher salt: "He's hired more rabbis to slaughter and inspect his beef." (Also sounds like a Beastie Boys lyric.) And, no, far as I know Heshy Wilensky, owner of the New Deal Kosher Market in North Miami Beach, is not a relative. OK, he's my dad. --Robert Wilonsky
