There’s a happy ending for a kosher-food melodrama that played out in West Hartford, Conn., this week.
After the local Waldbaum’s was sold by owner A&P to an outfit called Big Y Supermarkets, local news outlets reported that Big Y might jettison kosher food from the rechristened store. “Waldbaum’s Closing Creates Concerns About Kosher in West Hartford,” blared the headline on NBC Connecticut’s website. “We really hope that they will have a kosher department out of necessity. We really need a Jewish market in Big Y,” pleaded Rivka Weiselfish, owner of local Hebraic emporium Judaica.
