Regarding this afternoon’s item on a shortage of matzoh for Passover, mileages vary:
"I noticed the shortage too! I live in a very Jewish neighborhood…..near Pico/Robertson…closer to Pico/Fairfax. At my "ghetto" Von’s, there’s usually a huge Passover display in the front of the store. This time, there was a small display with every kind of matzoh EXCEPT Manischevitz! I ended up with some delicious Israeli wheat matzoh for my kugel. I’m thinking of eating tortillas the rest of the week. They aren’t leavened, right?"
"i find the matzoh shortage blurb had to swallow. i checked with some observant jewish friends who said they nor others they know had any problems at all. and there was plenty on the shelves of the gelson’s i shop at."
"I am glad to know that we are not the only Jewish family in town that cannot find matzoh (or, as the manager of our local market put it, "Passover crackers".)
"Kevin, please protect my identity to save me from ridicule at ****** HQ….But…I can affirm the shortage of Matzoh…I went to TWO different grocery stores last night and could not find any matzoh. Both in the WeHo/Cedars-adjacent area….Pavillions at Santa Monica and Robertson, and Ralphs and Beverly and Doheny. The managers said there was none to be had."
"I got a chuckle out of your items on the ‘matzoh shortage’ in Los Feliz. As a former resident of that neighborhood I can state that while it’s a great place to live on many counts, it has none of the things a more than "semi-observant" Jew needs. I’ll be happy to supply directions to Fairfax, Pico-Robertson or my own shtetl of Valley Village, where you can’t turn around this time of year without tripping over a box of matzoh!"
"Aren’t there any Kosher tortillas? Aren’t they flour, water, and salt?"
"Hi Kevin, this isn’t the first year of shortages. I noticed it last year. So this year I purchased those multi-box packages as soon as they come out. Cause if you run out in the middle of the week, you’re up a Red Sea without a paddle. Thanks for all the coverage, kosher-for-passover or otherwise."
"U mite wanna add that the WSJ reported on shortage of kosher for passover margarine last week."
