A posh food store in New York’s Greenwich Village has found itself red faced after offering hams for sale with the slogan “Delicious for Hanukkah,” the current Jewish religious holiday. The non-kosher labelling was spotted at
the weekend by Manhattan novelist Nancy Kay Shapiro, 46, who decided instead of alerting management to take a picture of the unorthodox sign and post it on the Internet.
“I just thought it was funny,” Shapiro, who described herself as an unobservant Jew, told the New York Post. “I wasn’t offended in any way. I just thought, here’s somebody who knows nothing about what Jews eat.”
By the time Shapiro returned to the store on Tuesday, the first night of Hanukkah, the signs had vanished, the newspaper reported.
