Magen Tzedek encouraging, not replacing, kashrut

We appreciate Rabbi Shafran's embrace of the importance of the work of Magen Tzedek when he states in his JTA Op-Ed, "to be sure Jewish ethical values in food production are no less important (than) halachic concerns, and are indeed embodied in independent halachic mandates. But they are distinct from kashrut." With that statement, Rabbi Shafran has conceded the very point that Magen Tzedek seeks to demonstrate for the Jewish community -- Jewish ethical values are no less important than halachic concerns.
