I meant to jump in on this earlier, but things got lost in the shuffle. I'm
afraid that Nancy's statement is a little misleading. It is true that most
kosher *jello* is pareve. However, there is such a thing as kosher *gelatin*
made from kosher cattle. Unfortunately I don't remember the brand name - might
even be Elyon, actually. So *always* read the label!!
Be well, Hadass
