As the nine days approach, the Jewish community faces distressing news of an anticipated price surge in Kosher meat, reports Crown Springfield Wholesale Meat Distributor has informed its retailers of significant price hikes, primarily affecting domestic beef products.

Starting this week, prices will rise by a staggering 39% across most beef items, with a shocking 79% increase on Prime Whole Rib. Only a few products managed to avoid any increase, while others experienced single-digit or minimal adjustments. This sudden spike in prices adds to the existing financial strain on the Jewish community, grappling with ongoing inflation and persistently high housing costs.
