Yes, I accidentally left out the word "generally". I meant to say Jewish foods are generally kosher. They certainly do not have to be though.

That is the ultimate Jewish food Larry. Jews eat more Chinese food than the Chinese do.

My first serious boyfriend was Jewish, and when we went out to eat, we always went to a Chinese restaurant. When they had family in, and iI met them, guess where we went for dinner... bingo!

I love cream cheese but I would skip the lox and vegtables.
