Ok . . . Now this irks me. In the so called "war" between the Hipsters and Hassids I think both sides have serious issues with how to address what they want - they're both to some degree stubborn, intollerant of others, and just plain annoying.
But the hubris of Jason Marcus and his new restaurant, "Traif", is just plain wrong.
I'm not talking about Halacha - though I feel everyone should eat kosher, his pork is no less kosher the McDonald's.
Nor do I think he's actually doing it to get in on the 'war' - he's merely capitalizing on the easy press -
What bother's me is his attempt to sound so guileless:
That he tells the media that he hopes in some small way Traif will serve as
"A meeting ground, a place for dialog. A place to bring the Jewish community together."
Come now - how can yo believe a line of that chrep!?
