In Baranavichy, the private bakery "Dolce Vita" started selling a cake under the name "Poor Jew". The shop assistant stated that this name for the cake had been chosen by workers of the bakery, as far as other cakes weighing 1.5 kilos cost about 200,000 rubles, whereas the Jew is poor, it can be bought for 71,000 rubles.

The Baranavichy citizen Liudmila Rapaport doesn't consider it to be funny: "Of course, the problem is not that it is hard to find a poor Jew. The problems appear when somebody brings the cake as a guest and it starts to be cut in pieces. Here's where anti-Semitic jokes and primitive "humor" will bloom. I hope that the administration of the shop will heed our opinion and stop selling the cake under such a name," noted Liudmila Rapaport, and added that it is funny when all people have fun, not only anti-Semits.
