Seek to Protect Purchaser of Kosher Meat in Boston

Download PDF for this date

Steps are being taken here by the United Kosher Butchers, of which Hyman Shulman is executive director, to protect the purchasers of meat represented as kosher. This action is taken in accordance with many complaints made to the organization that certain butchers in Greater Boston and vicinity are selling ordinary meat announced as kosher meat at the kosher meat prices. The United Kosher Butchers of Massachusetts and the Associated Orthodox Rabbis of New England are acting as a unit in an attempt to terminate unfair business practices and misrepresentation, and to assure the purchaser that the meat bought is kosher, as advertised.

Mr. Shulman has for four years organized and headed the work of the United Kosher Butchers and the Associated Orthodox Rabbis in their attempts to aid the sale of strictly kosher meats. He has been authorized by these associations to publish a list of certified kosher butchers, who actually hold the certificate of the Orthodox Rabbis and meet all their stringent requirements for cleanliness and purity.
