More on Agriprocessors

This week our homepage features articles about what makes meat kosher. But lately, the focus has been on what makes the treatment of workers kosher due to, in part, the crisis at Agriprocessors.
To shed light on the matter, JTA’s Ben Harris, who was on the ground in Iowa, interviewed both Aaron Rubaskhin, the owner of Agriprocessors, as well as his son Sholom, who served until recently as the CEO.

Also Uri l’Tzedek, an orthodox group devoted to social justice, has updated their petition as well as a list of restaurants who don’t serve Rushbashkin’s meat.
