What next? A tofu lamb shank?

JERUSALEM, March 30 (JTA) — Health-conscious Israelis can look forward this Passover to spreading the traditional charoset on organic matzah. The Israeli association for organic agriculture said it had invested some $33,000 to organize the marketing and distribution of the matzah, as well as other kosher-for-Passover goods, including organic baby food and organic grape juice. Association officials said the price of the unleavened bread, made from wheat that was not treated with any chemical fertilizers, would be about 30 percent more than the run-of-the-mill matzah.
