It took them a long time to, come out against, the workers. I guess the Jewish coffee drinkers, make a difference. They will probably close, because of loosing, biz.

I have not shopped there in over 10 years.
P.S. Be very careful what you buy, at Starbucks, Lately Kashrus articles, caution ‘vast majority of their drinks are either not Kosher at all, or Dairy/ DE’

Not kosher

could have worked there before he became frum and the dishwasher issue is known. Please see the CRC Starbucks list at https://consumer.crckosher.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/08/Starbucks-Beverage-List-24-Aug-2023.pdf, as well as some 10-15 minute videos discussing some of the issues around Starbucks at https://www.kashrusawareness.com/search-results?q=starbucks.

Raize money for Israel

They should raise money and give it to Israel to show they are sorry….not sure each other. The Jews in Israel don’t gain

Finally someone who can think for themselves and not just spew the hatred they were taught

I agree with you. If Starbucks is doing something to disassociate from the Pro-Palestinian haters who are trying to tie Starbucks and its logo to their despicable rants, they should be applauded and wished much success, not condemned.
