Bean bombshell from Manischewitz
●
Life just got a little better for American Sephardim — and for ev-eryone who doesn’t follow the Ash-kenazic custom of abstaining from rice and beans, as well as grains, dur-ing Passover.Manischewitz has introduced a line of certified kosher-for-Passover-for-Sephardim products that contain kit-niyot — the term used for rice, beans, and other legumes — under the su-pervision of the Orthodox Union and the Badatz Bet Yosef kashrut agency founded by former Chief Rabbi Ova-dia Yosef.This new brand is called Kitni, and includes canned chickpeas, popcorn, peanut butter, tahini, rice cakes, and lentils.While being marketed as for Sep-hardim only, supermarkets that stock Kitni are not expected to demand proof of Sephardi-ness from its customers before they will make the sale.The Kitniyot Liberation Front, which has advocated that Ashkenazi Jews eat kitniyot as permitted by the Talmud, declined to comment on this development.

IT’S YOUR PAPER TOO!
We’re looking for last year’s Purim costumes
●
The countdown to Purim has begun.In one month comes the joyous holiday of megillah reading, noise making, and dressing up. (And yes, parody articles in newspa-pers.) Every year, as soon as the holiday is over, people send us wonderful pictures of beautiful children in adorable costumes. And while we publish some of them in our Gallery section, truth is that a week after Purim, we feel a bit sated, overstuffed with hamantaschen and perhaps a bit hung over.So this year we’d like to change the order, and run costume pho-tos before the holiday.If you’re one of those people who start costuming the day after Tu B’shvat, this won’t be a prob-lem.If you’re like the rest of us, then please send us your pictures from last year’s celebration. Your Queen Esther or Young Ahasu-erus may have grown an inch or two since 5773 — but that doesn’t make last year’s pictures any less adorable.Please email high resolution photos to jstandardletters@gmail.com with the subject line “Purim photos.”
Kosher cheddar for a day
●
Mark Bodzin of Highland Park dreams of a fine kosher cheddar cheese, and he is trying to make this dream come true.He found an award-winning cheese maker willing to make a batch of kosher cheese under rab-binic supervision using kosher veg-etarian rennet.All he has to do is order 600 pounds worth — one day’s run — and Shelburne Farms will go kosher for a day, with the Massachusetts-based KVH kosher supervision agency looking on.So he has taken to Kickstarter.com to raise the money.A pledge of $32 will bring you one pound of kosher Shelburne Farms cheddar cheese. $600 will bring you 40 pounds.All told, Mr. Bodzin is looking to raise $16,000.In the video promoting the project on Kickstarter.com, Mr. Bodzin tells of his experience with non-kosher cheddar cheese. It was “grassy-smell-ing, crumbling, melt in your mouth, phenomenal-tasting,” he said.“Unfortunately, the product out there that’s kosher doesn’t quite fit the bill.”The producer, Shelburne Farms, is a nonprofit farm in Vermont; it has a herd of free range grass-fed Brown Swiss cows.The cheese will be aged from six to 12 months.More details are at http://kck.st/ LOg2tA.
