Kosher ethics panel at YU


The New York Times has a story yesterday on the kosher ethics panel Tuesday night at Yeshiva University (also live-streamed on the JTA website). 

In the piece, reporter Paul Vitello offers a good, if brief, overview of the various approaches presented at the panel, ranging from that of the fervently Orthodox Agudath Israel of America (kashrut and ethics are both important, but totally separate) to Shmuly Yanklowitz, co-founder of the social justice group Uri L’tzedek (consumers of immorally produced goods are culpable in their production).

A JTA video report on the event is coming soon.
