Kosherfest Carries On

Special To The Jewish Week

Hurricane Sandy may have crippled New York and New Jersey, knocking out power, displacing thousands from their homes, complicating the elections and, after some mayoral flip-flopping, leading to the cancellation of the New York Marathon.

But it is not getting in the way of Kosherfest, the annual trade show of the kosher food industry scheduled for Nov.13-14.
