Kosher Food Bill Passed in Connecticut Senate

The Connecticut State Senate passed the Kosher Food Bill today, which had been sponsored by Senator Jacob Caplan of New Haven. The bill provides for fines of $100 and six months’ imprisonment for violations.

The bill orders all Jewish restaurants, meat markets, and handlers of packaged goods to carry signs in their establishments, in letters at least four inches high, announcing whether the product being sold is either kosher or non-kosher.
