New Jersey - Ned Gladstein believes that if the Jewish community can’t come to the kosher butcher, the kosher butcher should come to them.

The president of Sunrise ShopRite, Inc., recently opened “Nathan’s Glatt,” a dedicated, fully staffed kosher meat department at his ShopRite supermarket on Route 46 in Parsippany. (That store and other ShopRites also carry a full array of packaged kosher products.)

Opening the department “was a great way to fill a void in the market since there are no other kosher meat stores in the area,” said Gladstein, a resident of North Caldwell and a former president of Congregation Agudath Israel of West Essex in Caldwell.


Gladstein said the move is different from that of other stores in that the store-within-a-store specializes in custom cuts, as well as prepared, ready-to-cook items such as shish kabobs, stuffed peppers, and other foods that his staff of chefs creates for his nonkosher departments.

“Why shouldn’t our kosher customers eat as well as our nonkosher customers?” he asked.

The new department offers kosher beef, lamb, veal, and poultry as well as meatballs, meat loaf, and turkey rolled with pastrami.

The department is named in honor of Gladstein’s grandfather, Nathan, who in 1940 opened Sunrise Markets, a family grocery store that moved during the early years from Freeland, Pa., in the Wilkes-Barre area, to Caldwell. Gladstein’s grandfather, his father, Irving, and his uncle, Harry Brodsky, are featured in a photograph taken in their original store sometime in 1946 or 1947 that hangs prominently over the counter in the new department.

The department is supervised by the Orthodox Vaad of MetroWes t. Nathan’s Glatt’s mashgiah-butchers are Bryan Stern and Daniel Einschlag.

ShopRite of Parsippany is located at 808 Route 46 in Parsippany; call 973-335-2625.

"What does Finkle have to do with this?"

You have a poor memory. Four years ago erev Rosh Hashana, VIN ran the story about a Chassideshe butcher in Monsey named Rav Moshe Finkel who owned Shevach Meats, which purchased kosher chicken and other meats in bulk, and then sliced and packaged it for sale at kosher grocery stores, yeshivot and wedding halls. Rabbi Weissmandel, z'tl and the owners of the Hatzlocha Grocery realized that Finkel was selling treife chickens as kosher because his usual kosher suppliers had cut off deliveries because he failed to pay his bills. In this case, there is no question about the kashruth because of the arrangements that Gladstein has made with the Vaad. We should wish him much hatzlacha.
