Conservative Jewish Union Won’t Boycott Agriprocessors

Wow, does this ever get under my skin. After all the evidence of outrageous mistreatment of workers and animals at Agriprocessors, evidence which now dates back almost five years to the undercover PETA video, the main governing body for America’s Conservative Jews has decided to not call for a boycott. Why? Because, supposedly the allegations haven’t been proven. How much more proof of appalling wrongdoing do they need?

Unbelievable. Anyone who would knowingly eat Agriprocessors meat, and claim that it adheres to Kosher principles, is a hypocrite of the highest order. And for this to be the position taken by the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism, well, that’s beyond disgraceful. Link.
