The Justice of Gelt - Parashat Vayeshev 2013/5774

Let me ask you something…is all chocolate created equally?

Usually, it’s taste and sometimes it might be kashruth.  As Jews, we pay more for kosher meat than non-kosher meat, but should there be other factors, like how the product is made, or by whom?  Should this be a factor?  Does it get a veto or a vote?
