The Star-K kashrut certification company denied this week that it gave Kosher Sports, Inc., a company with concessions at seven sports stadiums in the eastern United States, permission to keep its trio of stands at the New York Mets’ ballpark open on Shabbat.
The New York Post reported that Kosher Sports, based in Englewood, N.J.,last week sued the Mets in Brooklyn’s Federal Court, claiming that the team has barred the firm from selling its products at Citi Field during Friday night and Saturday games while Star-K agreed to let them stay open.
Just what Wall Street trader Jonathan Katz always wanted: a slice of the action.
Katz, who deals with hedge funds on weekdays, will handle pastrami and turkey on weekends this NFL season as a partner in Kosher Sports Inc., which will operate a pair of kosher food carts in Giants Stadium, in East Rutherford, N.J., during Giants and Jets game. The teams' home season starts Sunday, Sept. 7, with the Giants hosting the St. Louis Rams.
