Cost of keeping kosher in Europe forces habit changes

London…Keeping kosher in Europe is more costly these days just as it is in the U.S. and Israel where prices have risen 5% - 10% in the past few months. According to an article in the London Chronicle, people who keep kosher are scaling back with their purchases.

In Paris, the cost of many Israeli items has risen in the past few months, as have many local items. Similar increases are affecting Jews in Antwerp. The cost of kosher wines from the U.S. and Israel has risen as well.
