US kosher supermarkets to stop stocking Ben & Jerry’s in protest

Some kosher supermarkets in the US won’t stock Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, after the company announces it will end sales in the “Occupied Palestinian Territories.”

Glatt Express Supermarket, a kosher grocery store in Teaneck, New Jersey, announced via Facebook that it would no longer carry Ben & Jerry’s products following the company’s announcement.

“Due to the recent actions by Ben & Jerry’s, Glatt Express will no longer be carrying Ben and Jerry’s products. Am Yisroel Chai,” the store wrote in a post.

Aron’s Kissena Farms, a kosher market in Queens, made the same decision. The market “has removed all of the Ben & Jerry’s products in the Freezers, and will no longer sell any and all Ben & Jerry products effective immediately,” the store writes on Facebook. “Aron’s Kissena Farms stands with the state of Israel”
