Greenes defamed him in an ef-
fort to keep Superior as the sole
source of kosher meat for the
hospital.
His suit also alleges that the
Council of Orthodox Rabbis
(Vaad Harabonim) refused his
request to form a Jewish court
(beth din) to resolve the dis-
pute, and that Rabbi Moshe
Schwab of the Kollel Institute
wrote a letter claiming that
members of the Kollel only
patronize Superior for kosher
meat.
Nerenberg is demanding
$500,000 for defamation of
character and slander, $1 mil-
lion in punitive damages,
$10,000 from the individuals
for infliction of emotional dis-
tress, $10,000 from Sinai for
failing to correct the problem,
$10,000 from Rabbi Schwab
and the Kollel, and $10,000
from Rabbis Leizer Levin,
Chaskell Grubner and the
Vaad.
All of the principals in the
case referred The Jewish News
to their attorneys. Only Sinai's
attorney, Bill Winsten of Hon-
igman Miller Schwartz and
Cohn, responded to questions
about the case.
Winsten said he is "confident
there is absolutely no merit to
the case" and "it is a shame
that David Nerenberg is trying
to blame his business problems
on others."
The attorney said Sinai Hos-
pital declined to do business
with Nerenberg because he
does not meet the hospital's
standards. "Sinai looks to
ensure that its kosher foods
have the widest possible ac-
ceptance within the commu-
nity . . . His claims of discrimi-
nation and defamation are ab-
surd and I regret that he has
chosen this means of venting
his business difficulties."
"It is important to the hospi-
tal," Winsten said, "that its
patients that keep kosher are
comfortable with our kosher
suppliers. Wo had no confi-
dence that this would be the
case with this potential
supplier. We would be shirking
our obligations to our patients
if we based this decision solely
on price."

Winsten said less than five
percent of Sinai's food pur-
chases are for kosher products,
but neither he nor the hospital
provided requested informa-
tion about the amount of
kosher beef used at Sinai, the
difference in prices between
Superior and Lincoln, or if
Perlstein and Greenes could
serve as kosher supervisors
and buy meat directly from the
packing house.
Nerenberg's store had no
beef for sale on Sunday. His
nearly-empty display cases
contained only veal and poul-
try products. He told The
Jewish News that he has been
"cut-off" by Detroit's only
kosher packing house,
Monarch Packing. Stewart
Gottlieb of Monarch refused to
discuss details of his business
relationship with Nerenberg,
but insisted he would "sell him
any time for cash."
Nerenberg claims his trou-
bles may stem from his em-
ployment by Akiva Hebrew
Day School during its teachers
strike in 1983-84. Both he and
his wife were not retained by
the school, and he speculates
there may be animosity be-
cause they worked at the
school during the strike.
Nerenberg then worked at the
Farmer Jack Store in South-
field Plaza before buying Lin-
coln Kosher Meats last No-
vember.
Earlier this month, Neren-
berg lost a judgement in Oak
Park District Court. He was
accused of being behind in his
rent to Etkin and Co., owner of
Lincoln Center, and in his
payments to Zalman Kohen,
previous owner of the store.
Etkin and Co. has filed a sec-
ond action against Nerenberg,
accusing him of violating his
lease and the law, and is seek-
ing his eviction. The case is
scheduled to be heard Oct. 3.
On Monday night, Neren-
berg's request to join the De-
troit Area Kosher Retail Meat
Dealers Association was tabled
by the butchers' group, which
represents seven of the 13
kosher butcher shops in the
Detroit area.

Butcher Sues

Detroit's Kosher Retail Meat
Dealers Association heard a
report this week exonerating
Bernard and Son Kosher Meat '
Market in Farmington Hills
from the July allegations that
it had non-kosher meat in the
store. The butchers also voted
to keep Bernard Rayber and
his store in the association.
The report was presented by
Rabbi Jack Goldman. The
Council of Orthodox Rabbis
(Vaad Harabonim) has with-
drawn its certification of the

store.
Rabbi Goldman, who oper-
ates as the Michigan Kashruth
Council, challenged the Vaad's
action on two counts: the
Vaad's mashgiach (inspector),
he charged, was prejudiced
against Rayber, and did not
physically inspect the meat he
said was treife or take it with
him; the private investigator
hired by the Vaad, who fol-
lowed Rayber from his
brother's non-kosher packing
house, did not look inside the
boxes that Rayber took from
the packing house into his
store.
