When the Rabbinate in Israel isn’t being racist, they’re just being plain stupid….
Here’s the latest example;
Israel’s Chief Ashkenazi Rabbi Yona Metzger on Tuesday announced the discovery of a special goose species, which tastes exactly like pork.
One question comes to mind ….. how does the Chief Ashkenazi Rabbi know what pork tastes like?
Or is this all just a busine$$ deal for the ‘Kosher Nostra’ to stamp with their assortment of signs of approval…
Rabbinate presents: Pork-flavored foie gras

Chief Rabbi Metzger announces plan to import special goose liver which tastes just like forbidden meat

Israel’s Chief Ashkenazi Rabbi Yona Metzger on Tuesday announced the discovery of a special goose species, which tastes exactly like pork.
“We are looking into the possibility of industrial imports of goose,” the rabbi said during a culinary conference at the Kaplan Medical Center in Rehovot, tantalizing the taste buds of every kashrut observer in Israel.
The move presents a real culinary and halachic revolution, as it offers a solution allowing religious and traditional Jews to discover the taste of pork, which is forbidden according to Jewish dietary laws.
It turns out that farmers in Spain recently decided to breed geese in non-industrialized pasture lands. As opposed to the modern methods, they didn’t fatten the geese, but gave them natural food.
When the farmers tasted the first chunk of goose liver, they were amazed. “It tastes like pork,” they cried out.
They decided to share the sensational discovery with the chosen people, and sent a halachic query to Chief Rabbi Metzger. The latter demanded a second opinion, and asked that the goose liver be sent to three non-Jewish professional chefs in Europe, who are very familiar with the taste of Pork. The three chefs confirmed the discovery of a “rare culinary duplicate”.
Rabbi Metzger struggled with the problem and finally gave his answer: The meat is completely kosher. His ruling was based on a citation from the Talmud, which states that for every prohibition God imposed on the people of Israel – he created a kosher substitute with the exact same taste.
So how close are we to a pork-flavored Shabbat meal? Metzger tried to lower expectations on Tuesday, saying that the geese were still young and that the import of the meat is still being examined.

We plan to approve the move and help it happen,” the rabbi told Yedioth Ahronoth. “It could serve as an original Jewish solution for consumers of non-kosher meat, who will be receiving a proper substitute. As for religious Jews, I believe they will be disgusted at first, but will eventually get used to it.”

Rabbi Metzger made the remarks in a conference presenting future hospital food. The conference was also attended by Deputy Health Minister Yakov Litzman and the winner of the first season of “Master Chef”, Ina Kravasky.

    How about weasel as a pork substitute? Weasel eating might possibly enhance the “Exceptionalists” already extraordinary ability at “weasel wording”.

    Brilliant! About time you posted something on this scam.

    98% of the population is paying a tax so that 2% can pretend their mythical god is pleased.

    One of my Jewish friends is so deceived by Kosher food that he didn’t hesitate to buy Kosher meat on a train from Basel to Paris. We stayed all 2 days in Paris and the meat was in his bag and later at home he prepared a Kosher meal at home – he asked me to join. I had to find my excuses.

    For how many centuries have the Jews and Muslims both abstained from eating pork for all the wrong reason(s)?

    The Christians don’t even pretend to, also for the wrong reason(s).

    The right reason is very very simple to grasp, even for an adolescent.
    Odd that most Buddhists and many Hindus “get it?”

    This simplest and obviously humane reason extends to more than pork eating, rather a whole lot of other, equally nefarious acts as well.

    Here’s a hint and I’m pretty sure it’s in each of their high holy books….

    “Thou shall not kill.”

    OK, back to the business of barbarians simulating human beings.

    (the acting is so poor it doesn’t even fool pretend gods)

    While wondering why anybody would want to eat either pork or anything that tasted like pork it occurs to me that the people here seem to misunderstand Jewish Law, which applies to kosher food. Here’s the deal: If the Rabbi says it’s kosher, it is. Period. You may not shop around for a Rabbi that says what you like, but if your Rabbi says it’s kosher, it is.
