Things That Really Grind My Gears #6: Yeshivish take on goyish food
I will try posting one or two grinds per week to keep this as an ongoing segment.
You know what really grinds my gears?!…
…Hearing about a particularly eccentric Ner Rebbe’s rant about how he feels sushi (even certified under the COR) shouldn’t be kosher and he doesn’t eat it. Why? Apparently, sushi is not a “Jewish food”. When asked if he eats pizza and fries, his answer is “yes, because generally speaking pizza and fries are eaten by a lot of Jews, which therefore makes it less of a “goyish food”. He apparently didn’t hold of pizza and fries when he was growing up.
I wonder what he would say if a lot of Yeshivish people started wearing jeans and Srugah’s ? G-d forbid polos?…will they then become the standard Monsey garb?!
More to come next week. Stay Tuned….
Please send me some suggestions (via reply to this thread) of things that Really Grind YOUR Gears, and I will post the winner in a few weeks!
