    I have noticed at the JCC in Manhattan on 74th Street, and the JCC in Tenafly NJ that there is a pattern of losing kosher cafe operators. I think the pattern is that they welcome a local vendor, and then are disappointed with the volume of business, start dictating terms and hours and prices so that the vendor cannot make a profit and then boot the vendor out. It seems many non-profit executives are just not very good at arranging partnerships with for-profit food services. Come to think of it, I know of more JCCs where this pattern can be seen.
