Kosher BriefsÉNew York

New York…"Iron Chef" Masaharu Morimoto tried his hand at kosher butchery last week butchering a full tuna and rolling sushi with the help of Rabbi Yonah Metzger—the chief Rabbi of Israel—at the Lubavitch Youth Organization's "Grand National Testimonial Dinner" at Cipriani on Wall Street in New York. Morimoto has a personal connection to the organization due to the Mumbai terrorist attacks that killed key members of the Lubavitch Youth Organization, and also destroyed Morimoto's restaurant.
