Kosher Porn is Not “Kosher” with Kosher Crowd

Via, Citypages Blotter, and TMZ.com, I see that porn gets no respect from Rabbis. Apparently, porn can’t be Kosher Certified. Who knew?

Rabbi Yells “Cut!” Over Porn Flick – TMZ.com

Yesterday, Tight Fit Productions of Van Nuys, Calif., the purveyors of “Assraelis,” which was shot entirely in Israel with all-local talent, and in Hebrew (with, uh, English subtitles), received a cease-and-desist order letter from a lawyer representing Rabbi Yehuda Rosenbaum of KOF-K Kosher Certification, a New Jersey company that puts its stamp of approval on Kosher goods. Tight Fit’s DVD-cover claim of Israeli authenticity is accompanied by a Hebrew letter normally reserved for rabbi-ordained meats, grains, and other foodstuffs.

  1. It sounds complicated, but at least the producer had the right attitude, terming it ‘funny’ and that he would change the offending artwork before the release for the ‘very nice rabbis’.

    God bless him.

  2. The story is actually closer to a trademark infringement than it is to a kosher/non-kosher argument. The symbol used is specific “logo” belonging to the company in New Jersey, and not a general symbol used to describe kosher foods (or porn, for that matter). It’s like if someone made a porno about two characters named Mickey and Minnie and putting a logo on it that was a black circle with two “ear” circles over it. Sure, it is offensive and inappropriate to an entire segment of the population, but in the end in terms of the law it’s just trademark infringement with Disney.

  3. That makes sense.

    Personally, I was more offended by the quality of the acting. I realize they were breaking new language and locations, but still . . .

  4. Ah, the lengths you guys go for accurate blog posting…it shows an impressive dedication to your blog!
