Rabbis To Cheese Company: ‘Worker Exploitation Ain’t Kosher’

The cheese may be kosher. But treatment of workers hasn’t been.

Crain’s New York Business reports a delegation of rabbis was turned away at the front entrance to a Lexington Avenue office building when they tried to enter, “Michael Moore-style,” to demand a meeting with executives at Apax Partners. The private equity firm owns Israeli-based kosher cheese giant Tnuva Food Industries.
