Shining New Light on the Kosher Scam
The Jewish umbrella group, which includes the world’s largest kosher certification company, the Orthodox Union, is having serious internal leadership problems. The problems are allowing Gentiles to get a much better glimpse of just how the secretive organization is ripping them off through their very profitable kosher scam. …
The secretive Jewish organization is estimated to bring in over $20 million annually, much, if not most, of which is generated by selling the “right” to put their kosher label which is a U (it can be either standing alone or inside of a circle) to not only food companies but also to manufacturers of products ranging from tin foil to soap and shampoo to plastic sandwich bags. The companies pay the rabbis for the use of their kosher symbol and then pass that overhead cost on to their customers, you and me. That is how Gentiles end up putting cash in the pockets of rabbis. And, sadly, most Gentiles are not even aware of this kosher scam which is picking their pockets.
The kosher scam is often defended as being harmless. Snopes.com has a page which does this. They take issue with the scam being called a “tax.” Technically they are right, it is not a tax since it is not a government agency charging the extra cash. However, it is without question a hugely profitable scam for rabbis at the expense of Gentiles. The only way for the rabbis to continue it without it being a scam is to have the cashiers at the grocery stores ask each customer if they’d like to donate an additional 1 cent to 10 cents or more per item that will then be given to the rabbis who will keep some for themselves and use the rest to promote Judaism. (The snopes.com kosher article has a factual error which is that it claims the money the rabbis take in by selling the right to use their kosher symbols is only used to keep the business going and to pay the rabbis for their services [which is bad enough since the bulk of the money is from unsuspecting Gentiles] and that none of the money flows “off into some special Jewish fund used to advance Zionist causes.” The Orthodox Union openly brags about using its considerable amounts of cash to promote Judaism and their own logo contains the slogan “Enhancing Jewish Life”! [they should add “At the expense of Gentiles!”].)
