After staging a valiant fight for a long time, Doheny has caved into right wing pressure and become Glatt. That means regular (“Stam”) Kosher meat – the stuff most of our grandparents and great grandparents grew up with in Europe (when they could afford meat) is no longer available at Doheny.
Notch it up to another victory for the right wing sects of our religion and another blow to Modern (Centrist) Orthodoxy.
How ironic that it seemingly happened in a week when the Torah portion expressly prohibits both adding to and subtracting from G-d’s commandments (in that order). And how sad it is that we live in times when “adding to” the yoke is not seen as a violation of the law but an enhancement.
