Kosher USA follows the journey of kosher foods through the modern industrial food system. It traces how iconic products such as Coca Cola and Jell-O tried to become kosher and how Manischewitz wine became the very first kosher name-brand product to gain a wide non-Jewish audience. It also chronicles the techniques used and the difficulties encountered by Orthodox rabbinical organizations to embed kosher requirements in the production systems for modern food. Rich with stories about the key figures in this process, Kosher USA relates a tale redolent of great accomplishments and stubborn limitations that is reflective of the experiences of Jews in the predominantly Christian USA.
