The promotional display above confuses enjoying Jewish food with enjoying kosher food.  In fact, kosher food does not taste any different from the same food prepared without kosher observance.  Thus, while the native American pictured may indeed by enjoying his, say, corned beef sandwich, it is implausible that he is enjoying it because it is kosher.

In any case, the subject of this section of the Ukrainian Archive does not address the tastiness of foods prepared by Jews or often eaten by Jews.  That such foods can be enjoyed by non-Jews is obvious and irrelevant.  Rather, this section of the Ukrainian Archive addresses itself to the quite different question of a Jewish tax levied upon non-Jews.  Were the native American shown above to learn that the majority of the purchases that he made at his supermarket involved a payment to kosher-accreditation agencies, he might stop smiling.
