Monsey, NY - Rabbi: Ban On Lox Story Made Up By The Media
Monsey, NY - A Rockland group that caused a worldwide uproar when it purportedly put the pox on lox by claiming that the popular Jewish nosh isn’t kosher said yesterday that the warning was nothing but a fish tale.
“Go ahead, eat lox,” said Yisroel Neiman, a member of Chevra Mehadrin, a Monsey organization that prepared a report on fish and Jewish law. “It’s kosher — I just had some.”
Neiman said he had no idea why the report was being interpreted to mean that salmon, the fish from which nova lox is made, violates Jewish dietary law.
“They made it up,” Neiman said, referring to media organizations who attributed the ban on lox to the report. “It’s a lie. We never said lox isn’t kosher.”
