Proprietor Shirlee Bloom said
her supplier is checking the Kop-
pers Candies which were in-
cluded on the tray because the
candies carry a kosher symbol.
The second incident occurred
at the end of Sukkot. The rabbi
said the store's two kashrut su-
pervisors were out of town at the
same time, as was Ms. Bloom.
The rabbi said he told store own-
er Ron Asmar to sell only frozen,
sealed foods from the store's
freezer until a supervisor re-
turned the next day. Instead, the
store continued operations with-
out a supervisor.
Mr. Asmar said Rabbi Gold-
man told him he could sell any-
thing that was prepared before
Ms. Bloom agrees that the
store made a mistake that would
not have happened if she or the
supervisors had been present.
"But the crime doesn't fit the
punishment," she said. "We
weren't cooking or selling treife. •
"I don't blame the rabbi, don't
misunderstand me. We made a
mistake. But this is very harsh."
Ms. Bloom immediately re-
moved the kosher signs inside
the store as requested by Rabbi
Goldman and is telling callers
she is no longer supervised.
"Most of our customers are very
faithful, but some will leave," she
Rabbi Goldman said the
penalty for the infractions would
be no supervision for 90 days.
Mr. Asmar said the rabbi also
demanded a $250 fine. "If we
paid $250, then everything is
OK If we don't pay, then every-
thing is treife — that doesn't
seem fair," Mr. Asmar said. "We
simply took the food that was
wrapped up on Monday and put
it in the case on Thursday.
That's what he told me to do."
Rabbi Goldman said the $250
fine would not be the only penal-
ty. 'There's no guarantees that
we would go back to them after
90 days. They also would have
to put up locked gates in the
kitchen, and only we would have
the keys," he said.
Ms. Bloom said she is investi-
gating kosher supervision from
other sources. ❑
