Growing up in Midwood, Brooklyn, the Eidelman brothers ate a lot of meat. Their mother, Sara, an accomplished cook was born to Holocaust survivor parents who couldn’t afford the luxury. So she wanted to give her boys all she could.

“She used to buy us filet mignon,” said Sruly Eidelman, now 26 and living in Crown Heights.

On a recent trip to SoCal to visit a client, I stopped off in the heart of Jewish Los Angeles (Pico-Robertson Boulevard, of course) to check out Mexikosher, a kosher Mexican restaurant that that tastes like the real deal in Mexican cooking.
What makes this place different, and so much better, than kosher “Mexican” restaurants I’ve eaten at in New York is that this isn’t fast food.

In 1952, when the Conservative movement was rapidly becoming America’s largest Jewish denomination, its Committee on Jewish Law and Standards issued this opinion: “Fish dinners in non-kosher eating places shall not be construed as a violation of the dietary laws.”

However, that opinion was not the final or official position, the Law Committee noted at the time, promising to release more details soon.

Fishy subject: New Conservative ruling adds stringencies to eating such foods as fish or pizza in non-kosher restaurants.
