Regarding “Kosher markets drop Ben & Jerry’s; freezer outage melts inventory” (July 29):It is a shame that our local kosher supermarkets are entering the Jewish culture wars. It is divisive and unnecessary. I will not give either of them my business until they make a public statement changing their minds about this decision. Israel is on a road toward perpetual conflict, or worse, crossing the threshold into becoming an apartheid state, as it annexes chunks of the territories toward a point of no return. Ben & Jerry’s is making a statement the majority of American Jewry supports. This is not BDS, it is a comment on the disastrous path the settlements project represents.
