It <u>does not</u> deal primarily with kashrut. A paragraph printed on the dustcover front flap reads as follows: <font class="11point">"This book analyses the boundaries of Judaism's messianic faith and its conception of God. It assesses the threat posed by the messianists of Lubavitch and points to the consequences, ranging from undermining a fundamental argument against the Christian mission to calling into question the kosher status of many foods and ritual objects prepared under Lubavitch supervision. Finally, it proposes a strategy to protect authentic Judaism from this assault." </font> Discussion of kashrut-related matters may be found on the following pages: eat...restaurant 133; general comment 145,147,148; kashrut 113,118,137; kosher 138,143; Lubavitch meat 132; milk 73; schechita 89,93,146. </TD> <TD ALIGN="CENTER" VALIGN="TOP"><IMG SRC="Rebbe-x128.jpg" WIDTH="128" ALT="" alt="The Rebbe, The Messiah and the Scandal of Orthodox Indifference, by Rabbi David Berger"></TD> </TR> <!-- ======================================================================= --> <TR> <TD valign="top"> <a name="tevilathkelim"></a> <B>Tevilath Kelim</B> - A Comprehensive Guide <BR><small>AUTHOR</small>: Rav Zvi Cohen &copy; 1988 <BR><small>PUBLISHER</small>: Targum Feldheim <BR><small>ISBN</small>: 0-944070-06-X <BR><small>FORMAT</small>: 16.2cm W x 23.5cm H.
