The Nizkor Project: Remembering the Holocaust (Shoah)

Wednesday May 29, Ron Chalmer's "Money Matters" column on the front page
of the business section of the Edmonton Journal.

"Tall tax tale isn't kosher"

Kosher Question: Can I claim a $300 kosher tax deduction for buying Saran
Wrap, Mr. Clean, Sanka and other products that have been blessed by rabbis
and identified by secret symbols?

Answer: No. This old and vicious rumour is based on anti-Semitic scapegoating
that tries to b;ame Jews for highr prices - to pay the rabbis - then claims
Jews are the only ones who know the secret symbols and claim the kosher
deduction. It's all false.

End of quote.
