It's antisemitic to ask the question "Why do I have to pay a Kosher Tax on my food and I'm not even Jewish?"

So don't do it.

I don't have any problem with that. If the producer want the spend some money on those certificates, kosher or halal or "natural", it's his business. They could also spend a lot of money for the tv commercials. I don't buy the stuff if it's tho expensive.

Not just any BS, but 15 year old BS.

[link to www.cra-arc.gc.ca]

OTTAWA, March 10 1997…Revenue Minister Jane Stewart today expressed concern that certain groups are encouraging Canadians to make ineligible claims for non-existent charitable donations.

Various flyers circulated by these groups state that Canadian consumers pay higher prices for foods labeled kosher. One such publication alleges that a growing number of food processing and manufacturing plants in the food industry use a hidden kosher food tax to raise food prices to Canadian consumers. The flyers recommend that all taxpayers claim a 'deduction', ranging from $200 to $500, because they supposedly contributed to a Jewish religious organization when they purchased these groceries.

"The intent and message in this literature is deeply offensive to the Jewish community and, indeed, to all Canadians," said Mrs. Stewart. "The so-called 'deduction' described in these flyers does not exist and I urge all taxpayers to ignore this misleading advice."

Right... A myth... Then why won't any company disclose how much it pays to the Rabbis for Kosher certification? It's not free so they have to be paying something. And you know that price is built into the product price.

Re: Why do I have to pay a Kosher Tax on my food and I'm not even Jewish?
there is a simple way to avoid such a "tax" if indeed it does exist: just look for the various symbols on labels that indicate a kosher product, and dont buy them. a couple of examples would be ANY product with both meat and milk products, any product with shellfish, any product with pork. those symbols just show that a jewish consumer who keeps a kosher house can eat that product. the "inspection" just shows that different machines are used for processing of dairy and meat products, pork and kosher meats, etc. most vegetable products will get the approval as kosher or pareve just on face value (no forbidden foodstuffs processed in the plant ever)

yes the kosher tax exists. just look on the front label, if there is a letter u circled, it's kosher.

i've noticed a lot of heb brand items are not kosher, and that's why i shop there. only way to stop this is to boycott all items with the u circled.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 21054025


ALL standalone milk products are kosher. that would be butter, milk, yogurt. many cheeses are NOT, because they use an animal based product to curd the milk (rennet). so, a single inspection covers the entire milk "line" of the producer, with the exception of cheeses. if you object so much, dont buy their milk. get your friends and neighbors to not buy their milk. if a financial impact in sales is felt, they'll market a non-kosher labeled product for you and they. of course, it will be priced even higher, because now they will have to spend more for labels to conform to YOUR ridiculous request. feel free to use economic protest to cut your nose off to spite your face. the plant inspections are done on an annual basis, so any cost passed to the consumer amounts to incredibly minor fractions of a penny per container. in other words, it's basically a "bullshit thing to worry about". by the way im not jewish, nor do i work for any food processing company either directly or indirectly. i did however grow up in NYC, which has a very large jewish population, and being a "curious george" kinda kid wanted such minutiae explained to me. you're making a big deal over nothing.

The 'Kosher Nostra Scam'
On The American Consumer

EXCERPT from a much longer post on re nse in 4-29-2 :

What we learned next, pretty much floored me personally. I learned that major food companies throughout America actually pay a Jewish Tax amounting to hundreds of million of dollars per year in order to receive protection. This hidden tax gets passed, of course, to all non-Jewish consumers of the products. The scam is to coerce the companies to pay up or suffer the consequences of a Jewish boycott. Jewish consumers have learned not to buy any kitchen product that does not have the (U) the (K) and other similar markings.

Another shocker was learning who is actually behind these sophisticated "Kosher Nostra Scams." It turns out that the perpetrators of these elaborate extortion schemes are actually Rabbinical Councils that are set up, not just in the U.S. but in other western countries as well. For example, the largest payola operation in the U.S. is run by those who license the (U) symbol. The (U) symbol provides protection for many products sold here in Aztlan and in the United States. This symbol is managed by the The Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations with headquarters at 333 Seventh Avenue in New York City.

The scam works like a well oiled machine and is now generating vast amounts of funds, some of which are being utilized by the Union of Orthodox Rabbis to support the Ariel Sharon Zionist government in Israel. The website of the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations is full of pro-Israel and anti-Palestinian propaganda.

The "Kosher Nostra" protection racket starts when an Orthodox Rabbi approaches a company to warn the owners that unless their product is certified as kosher, or "fit for a Jew to eat", they will face a boycott by every Jew in America. Most, if not all of the food companies, succumb to the blackmail because of fear of the Jewish dominated media and a boycott that may eventually culminate in bankruptcy. Also, the food companies know that the cost can be passed on to the consumer anyway. The food companies have kept secret from the general consumer the meaning of the (U) and the amount of money they have to pay the Jewish Rabbis.

It is estimated that the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations, which manages the (U) symbol protection racket, controls about 85% of the "Kosher Nostra " certification business. They now employ about 1200 Rabbi agents that are spread through out the U.S. Food companies must first pay an exorbitant application fee and than a large annual fee for the use of the (U) copyright symbol. Secondly, the companies must pay separate fees each time a team of Rabbis shows up to "inspect" the company's operations. Certain food companies are required to hire Rabbis full time at very lucrative salaries.

The amount of money that the non-Jewish consumer has paid the food companies to make up for the hidden Jewish Tax is unknown, but it is estimated to be in the billions since the scam first started. The Orthodox Jewish Councils as well as the food companies keep the amount of the fees very secret. The Jewish owned Wall Street Journal wrote about the problem many years ago, but they have stopped writing about it now.

Only public awareness concerning the "Kosher Nostra Scam" will eventually help stop this swindle of the American consumer. Public education of the scam may lead to an eventual non-Jewish boycott of all products with the (U), (K) or other Jewish protection symbols. I certainly do not need to pay extra for "kosher water", "kosher coffee" or "kosher plastic sandwich bags". In fact, I demand my money back for all the money I had to pay over the years for the hidden and illegal Jewish Tax. Are there any bright attorneys out there that could bring a class action suit against the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations on behalf of the citizens of Aztlan and other non-Jewish people? ___
