As A Muslim, Kosher Restaurants Are Sometimes A Godsend

Editor’s Note: On May 16, 2017, Scribe featured piece by Jacob Frommer asking a simple question: Why Are Most Kosher Restaurants So Terrible? The piece has since sparked many heated and thoughtful discussions online. In the coming days, we’ll be featuring several responses from readers and Jewish communal leaders alike.

My wife and I are fans of kosher food. We are Sunni Muslim and whenever we can’t get Halal food, we search for kosher, which is permitted by our dietary restrictions. I was on business in Cleveland and discovered a great kosher restaurant — I must have put on 10 lbs! The best road to peace in the world is through the stomach.
