Six years ago, JTA’s managing editor, Uriel Heilman, won an award for his article about Kosherfest, a kosher food trade expo in New Jersey. This week, Adam "McLovin" Soclof was sent to help our readers visualize the kosher food industry’s answer to the Wonka Factory. For this report — his final dispatch as an Insight Fellow/Digital Media Associate — Soclof received a stern piece of advice from Heilman: "When you get there, don’t eat the meat right away. Because then you’ll be done for the day with dairy — ruined!"
