    I believe the Messianic believers should be provided kosher meals as they requested. It is a matter of conscience of the inmates, not of the messianic rabbis who were contacted. Many non Jewish, and even non Messianic believers abstain from pork and shellfish – because our Creator said these things were not FOOD – whether Messianic Jewish or not.

    Just because the prison system wrongly considers them protestants doesn’t rationalize pushing a non-Jewish, non-scriptural diet on the inmates. Messianics practice their beliefs through a Jewish perspective and consider themselves grafted into Israel.

    It is abhorrent to be served something that one cannot eat as this causes waste of food, which would far outweigh any extra cost of just eliminating pork and shellfish off the Messianics Menu.
