Mr. Iceman

yes they will serve cheeze but you will not find it served with meat.

will you be attending and specifically attending for a piece of cheeze?

Posted by: cheeze | Apr 11, 2006 2:44:57 PM

oh please. get over yourselves and don't be so fricken sensitive. i'm jewish myself. and why would they serve matzoh at a tyler perry book signing?? unless he's a jew. hope everyone has a nice seder dinner.

Posted by: rahrah07003 | Apr 11, 2006 3:28:14 PM

why no cheese with the meat?

Posted by: Iceman | Apr 11, 2006 3:30:55 PM


To mix dairy and meat products is not kosher. Observant jews will have two sets of dishes, cookware and even kitchens in their home so that things that touch meat never touch dairy.

It's not kosher, ICe.

Ice, for a moment there I despaired of you. You never went to Grossinger's or the Concord, even? Still, there are few things worse than a so-called "kosher pizza."

Tyler Perry, out of drag in the picture above, looks so, well, so "masculine." Enough so that I suddenly find his movies, none of which I've ever seen, almost disturbing. And in them, Ice, almost everything on the table is treyf (sp.?).

Your spelling is fine

Also spelled tref

Unclean and unfit for consumption according to dietary law; not kosher.

I'm embarrassed about my lack of knowledge of the Jewish diet. Obviously, I haven't had any jewish friends who adhered to the traditional diet or shared the dietary 'rule's with me. Oh, well, now I know.

I try never to pour beer or scotch in glasses that have had soda or other non alcoholic drinks. Does that sound like an Irish custom?

Posted by: Iceman | Apr 11, 2006 3:57:01 PM

ROC sates that "Observant jews will have two sets of dishes, cookware"

I think they might even have four sets of dishes. One set for everyday use and another set for use during Passover.

Is there a Rabbi in the house to answer this one?
