Tuna Fish Issue Explained

Editor. The Jewish News:
Some confusion has
arisen in the Jewish commu-
nity recently, regarding the
kosher status of canned
tuna fish. The confusion
stems from a responsum
that was recently issued by
Rabbi Moses Feinstein,
dean of the Yeshiva Tiferes
Jerusalem in New York
City.
In his responsum. Rabbi
Feinstein stated that spe-
cial caution should be exer-
cised in the purchase of
tuna fish because many
types of fish are caught in
the net together with tuna,
and some of these may be
non-kosher species of fish.
At the OU tuna canneries,
all the fish that are brought
in from the sea are care-
fully inspected, to separate
the kosher from the non-
kosher fish. Then. the tuna
are separated among their
various species because not
all species of tuna are suit-
able for commercial use.

Then the tuna are sepa-
rated according to size and
shape.

After all these prepara-
tions, the tuna are refrig-
erated or frozen and ship-
ped to another location,
where they are fileted and
desquamated, after receiv-
ing their final inspection.

In addition. at the OU su-
pervised tuna plants, only
kosher OU-endorsed oils
are used in the packing of
the tuna. The tuna fish that
finally arrives on the mar-
ketplace, marked by the
seal of the OU is absolutely
kosher beyond all question.
Fresh fish that are of the
kosher variety may be rec-
ognized by the possession of
fins and easily removable
scales. A complete list of
the kosher species of fish is
available at the Detroit of-
fice of the Union of Ortho-
dox Jewish Congregations
of America. For informa-
tion, call 547-2999.

Arab Aim: to Destroy Israel

Editor, The Jewish News:
In response to those who
maintain reservations about
Mr. Begin's policy, don't be
disillusioned. It is quite
clear, that even if Israel
yields and returns all of the
territories acquired during
the Six-Day War, peace will
not be achieved.
This
conclusion
is
reached after noting that
the Arab nations in 1967
carefully executed a plan to
wage war against Israel. At
that time in history, occu-
pied lands were not an
issue. Therefore, if Israel
returns the occupied terri-
tories, why should the Arab
leaders • suddenly desist
from destroying the Jewish
state?

This is- only one of the
many flaws contained in
the Arabs' claim that re-
turning all occupied terri-
tories and settling the Pales-
tinian issue, will bring

mended to the chairman of

on Jerusalem.

A Lesson in Jewish Roots

Editor, The Jewish News:
If you are looking for an in-
stant reminder of your Jewish
roots, turn to your Siddur.

world, but we have to real-

destruction of the state of
Israel.
