Convicted for Violating Kosher Food Ordinance

Download PDF for this date

Convicted of violating an ordinance regulating the sale of food, Harry Magad, an East Lombard Street storekeeper, was fined $100 and costs by Judge George A. Solter in the Criminal Court.

Magad was charged with having advertised as kosher food meat which was not kosher.

Arraigned several weeks ago, Magad’s trial was postponed upon the suggestion that he be tried before a rabbinical court in the ancient manner of his people. Ten rabbis found him guilty and ordered him to remove all kosher symbols from his store.
