Brazil Plans First Kosher McDonald’s

Brazil may soon get its first kosher McDonald’s.

The facility in Sao Paulo might be opened soon if a kosher pilot project starting June 3 is considered commercially viable. A group of Orthodox rabbis from the Monte Sinai congregation will supervise meat slaughter and the production of hamburgers and bread that will be sold to some 500 consumers a day.

“There is a clear interest from McDonald’s. Now we as a community must support and be present in order to make it happen,” an organizer said. Some 60,000 Jews, about half of Brazilian Jewry, live in Sao Paulo.
