Federal Bureau of Prisons Preps for Yom Kippur in Wake of Hurricane Florence

Federal Bureau of Prisons

Preps Yom Kippur

In Wake of Hurricane Florence

9/16/2018 12:50 AM PDT


Some Jewish federal prisoners wanna keep things kosher for Yom Kippur … and the Federal Bureau of Prisons is accommodating, especially for facilities affected by Hurricane Florence. 

The docs show the Bureau spent $21,799 on kosher items, with the holiest Jewish holiday coming up — which begins sundown Tuesday with a breakfast Wednesday at sundown. 

Jewish prisoners in all facilities around the country will have access to kosher food, but the $21,799 is specifically earmarked for prisons in the path of Florence. The figure represents food already purchased for the hurricane-affected areas, especially in case markets are shut down before Yom Kippur hits. 

The Bureau also dropped $8,650 for Dasani bottled water and $4,269 for 40 basic portable restrooms … all for prisoners in the event damage from Hurricane Florence disables restrooms.
