Rabbi Yells "Cut!" Over Porn Flick

1/25/2007 5:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

ASSRAELISThe producer of an all-Israeli porn flick is under attack from rabbis who say his use of a food-certification symbol ain't kosher.

Yesterday, Tight Fit Productions of Van Nuys, Calif., the purveyors of "Assraelis," which was shot entirely in Israel with all-local talent, and in Hebrew (with, uh, English subtitles), received a cease-and-desist order letter from a lawyer representing Rabbi Yehuda Rosenbaum of KOF-K Kosher Certification, a New Jersey company that puts its stamp of approval on Kosher goods. Tight Fit's DVD-cover claim of Israeli authenticity is accompanied by a Hebrew letter normally reserved for rabbi-ordained meats, grains, and other foodstuffs.

KOF-K's lawyer says that Tight Fit is using the symbol "illegally" in violation of State and Federal Law, and plans to sue "if the situation is not rectified as quickly as possible." Oren Cohen, the owner of Tight Fit, finds the action "funny," but will modify the cover art before the film's release next week -- to satisfy what he calls the "very nice" rabbis.

No word from Cohen, who himself does not observe the Kashrut, on whether, despite their Kosher claims, meat and milk products were mixed during the making of "Assraelis."

What's the definition of Jewish foreplay? 4 hr's of begging. Why do Jewish husbands die young? They want to.

More from the redneck Billy Ray. I bet you didn't know that the most sexually voracious of all women is the Jewish woman. So shut the f*** up with your anti-Semitic remarks.

This is similar to what Jesus said to the religious leaders - the Pharisees - of His day. They're more concerned about the externals (caring about a kosher symbol) than about the internal (the heart); exploiting women, being lacivious, etc.

So sad...

Hmmmm......

Is semen Kosher? Or does that depend on whether or not the person is Kosher....I never really thought about it before....but, if she's suck'n someone off in the porn movie...it may be a relavant question......

Do they use a white sheet with a hole in it? I always wanted to know if that was true, but NEVER had the desire to sleep with a jewish man....go figure.....

I'm with "TMZ Loves Perez". I don't like Jews either. I would like TMZ to focus more on non-Jew Hollywood news and promoting Christian celebrities.

I am a Jew and I thought the story was pretty funny. And to the poster called "TMZ loves Perez" you obviously have a problem with Jews. Let me guess... you make about $12 per hour and work in a warehouse? Probably come from a long line of poor losers who hate Jews because we work hard and instill the same values in our kids?

Anyway, this website is about the entertainment industry, right? Well, porn is part of the entertainment, right? The story was just plain funny.
