No more Sloatsburg kugle

State Police have banned the serving of potato kugel at the Sloatsburg exit on the New York Thruway. In the past, starting Thursday night there would be a constant stream of potato kugel for hungry country goers on their way up. However this year that has all ended. The New York State Police have said that anyone serving food at the rest stop will receive a ticket. State Police attribute this change in their former policy of looking away due to the littering that had taken place in the past. The State Police said that while trash cans were readily available to dispose of used plates and forks, nonetheless there would always be trash left over from the people that had stopped off. I wonder if the troopers will change their mind and let the kugel back if everyone promises to eat with their hands.

Comments:
At least someone is enforcing Menschlichkeit.
It has bothered me for years the way many frum ppl think they own the world, and leave their garbage all over the place.
The Chillul Hashem this causes is humongous.
So barring an all-out assault on State Police HQ, we will be Kugeel-less for the duration.
Next time, when doing the immense Chessed for all the hungry country-goers, think about common decency as well, and make sure ppl clean up after themselves

 

Instead of kugel, how about they serve (kosher, of course) donuts? It's a neat treat you can eat with your hands, you don't need a plate or utensils, so there's little mess -- and best of all, it's something that both frummies AND cops can agree upon that they enjoy andcan eat together!

Now THAT was funny!

 

isn't Thursday nite "kuggel eating" a Jewish ritual(mitzvah)?

Dont eat anymore kugel . Save that GAS for your car.

 

there were 400 peices of cake, 200 orange juice servings, to break the fast, It was all gone within minutes of the fast. Rock on Reb Zishe!!!
