(Scroll down for video) A rabbi in Mississippi, said that he was kicked out of a restaurant because he is Jewish.

Rabbi Ted Riter of Congregation Beth Israel, said that he went to Wraps in Maywood Mart on Tuesday for lunch, and he ordered a salad.

Riter of Jackson, said that the man who took his order, asked: “A full-sized or a Jewish size?” When asked what he meant, the man said: “It’s small. Jews are cheap. Everyone knows that.”

Riter said that he could not believe what he heard, so he said: “Did you really say that?” The man behind the counter asked him if he was a Jew. When Riter said “yes,” he was told to leave the restaurant.

The owner of the restaurant was identified as John Ellis. His employees deny that he is anti-Semitic, and said that the whole thing was probably a big misunderstanding.
