Head of kosher slaughterhouse convicted of fraud
By Michelle Boorstein
Some Jewish groups are praising the conviction of the former head of a kosher slaughterhouse where federal agents conducted a massive immigration raid last year in Iowa. The case of Sholom Rubashkin and the Rubashkin family has prompted a lot of debate in the Jewish community about the concept of being kosher, or of the laws of kashrut, and whether they do or should include not just the condition of food but the ethics of food, including how food businesses are run. The case has given a lot of fuel to the movement of Jews from all parts of Judaism who want to create a special seal certifying ethics.
