From the Editor

By the time we went to press, we still had not heard from many brands that traditionally share their new products for Passover. We are pleased, however, to bring you Eda Kram’s report on a large number of new products to be introduced this Passover. Amazingly there will be nearly 55,000 Kosher for Passover items this holiday…Why will 30,000 Jews spend Passover in Orlando? We’ve got the story…Who is fueling the growth of kosher? The foodies, of course. Read our story…Kosher wines take center stage at major food and wine event…Is a relatively new chain of kosher independent supermarkets on the verge of unveiling the kosher store of the future?…More kosher hotels are coming to Israel…Miami Beach restaurants move to Surfside…In My Sixth Sense, I look at Purim as a sign kosher is more than a one holiday phenomenon.

SPECIAL KOSHER WINE ISSUE: PLEASE NOTE THAT THE ANNUAL KOSHER TODAY SPECIAL PASSOVER WINE EDITION WILL BE PUBLISHED ON MARCH 5TH. THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION OF YOUR NEW PRODUCTS IS FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 23rd. ONLY WINES INTRODUCED FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 2018 ARE ELIGIBLE FOR SUBMISSION. ALL SUBMISSIONS SHOULD BE MADE TO [email protected]
