Talk about your fire sales! Bowing to pressure brought by Almighty God, Moses, Maimonides, and other powerful figures in the New York kosher-food establishment, Eli Zabar will sell his kosher bakery for the far-below-market-value sum of ten dollars as part of a religious ritual this Passover, Gael Greene reports. (Though legally binding, the sale is a token one, and Zabar will buy the place back at the end of Passover.) Now if only he could be persuaded to sell his coffee, lox, and rugalach for ten dollars! That would be an act of piety we could get behind.
