ALERT:- Ben & Jerry's Parve Ice cream is produced on non-kosherized equipment "Mishpacha magazine calls it parve???"

 Ben & Jerry's Parve Ice cream is produced on non-kosherized cholov akum equipment.

Mishpacha magazine's article is very mis-leading by calling it "parve".

(KCL?) Blueberry and Strawberry alerts

KCL's position re: the most recent Pardes Strawberries & Golden Flow Blueberries

KCL Rabbi "don't know!"

What is the solution for the numerous "improper-brissim" being performed?

There have been numerous instances of improper brisim, due to lack of proper training / knowledge hygiene, etc by the Mohel.

It involves also proper instruments, how much to cut, precisely where  to cut, angle, פריעה , bleeding control, bandaging, post care, pre-care preparation, injury to gland, etc.

A parent is not an expert as to what is a qualified mohel and a proper bris.
Most people aren't either experts in this field.

The fact that he is a mohel for many years or he's family, friend, etc does not provide the level of comfort required, One can't afford a mistake.

What is the solution?

We saw a solution recently at a bris.

A Mashgiach that is not an active Mohel, but is an expert in all areas of a proper bris. The mohel was told that there is a mashgiach for the bris, this is the mashgiach, etc. The Mohel was extremely pleased. The mohel said to the mashgiach if you see something not proper? say it then & there, don't wait till after the bris.

He stated after the bris, "I wish there would always be by every bris a "qualified mashgiach" to oversee the proper procedure.

send your resume and references to  subject line "brisim"

UPDATE: Alert from Hisahdus Harabinm Di'Lakewood re: Blueberries

more than מיעוט המצוי

Certified by Hisachdus of Brooklyn.
NOTE: Lakewood's KCL is not a Kashrus Organization per se, KCL is a political Organization [they fear Hisachdus of Brooklyn-hence no alerts from KCL] The money they take, is "protection-money".
Do not use any product with blueberries, including;
Cheese cake
Gevina yougurts and Lebens

Reb Lipa Klein Crc Hisachdus Brooklyn says;
Hisachdus doesn't make recalls.

כשרות הסרדין

מאת יוסי שטיינברגר

בעניין איסור אכילת תולעים המצויים בדגים, קיימים שני מצבים, והגמרא מחלקת בין שניהם: א. תולעים הנוצרות (או בוקעות מהביצים) בתוך גופו של הדג ולא יצאו ממנו החוצה - שמותרות באכילה. ב. תולעים הנוצרות במים וחודרות לאחר מכן אל הדג (לתוך גופו, או שהן נצמדות לעורו מבחוץ) - שאסורות באכילה,
כנגזר מחילוק זה  מצינו בהלכה חילוק נוסף והוא בין תולעים הנמצאים בבני המעיים של הדג שהם אסורים באכילה, לבין תולעים האמורים לעי"ל הנמצאים בתוך בשר הדג, שעליהם אומרת הגמרה שמותרים באכילה שכן אלו הם התולעים האמורים שלא הגיעו מחוץ לדג אלא נולדו בתוך בשר הדג. לאחרונה נוצר שטורעם אודות משפחת תולעי ה"אניסאקיס" תולעים אלו נראים הן בבני המעיים והן בתוך בשר הדג. רוב הפוסקים אוסרים גם את אלו הנמצאים בתוך בשר הדג בטענה כי המדענים מוכיחים שאלו תולעים שהגיעו מחוץ לגד ולא נולדו בבשר הדג. ועל כן אוסרים פוסקים אלו לאכול דגי סלמון וסול המיובאים מסין, וכן הערינג ומקרל ועוד, שבהם קיימת האניסאקיס בתוך בשר הדג. לעומתם מספר פוסקים מתירים תולעים אלו בטענה כי אלו התולעים שהגמרא התירה במפורש כי נולדו בתוך בשר הדג.
אלא שלכל הדעות גם לאלו המתירים את התולעים שבבשר הדג, אוסרים הם את אלו הנמצאים במעי הדג והנה נודע לי שברוב הסרדינים והשפרוטים קיימים תולעים בבני המעיים. לאחרונה נמצא שסרדינים שמקורה במרוקו נמצאו נקיים, אלא שגם ממרוקו יש לרכוש בכשרות מהודרת שכן מסתבר שיש סרדינים ממרוקו שגם הם נגועים בתולעים כיוון שלא נידוגו במרוקו עצמה אלא יובאו אליה ממדינות אחרות.

UPDATE: Camp Bnos is not safe for girls- watch the new video הכזונה יעשו אחותינו?ת
הכזונה יעשו אחותינו?
Dear Rabbis, parents and Leaders,
We assume you were not notified of the horrific event which took place at Camp Bnos (Agudas Yisroel) this past summer. It is important for you, as a leader, to be made aware that a camper was raped on the girls’ campus. She was left unsupervised and taken advantage of in the worst possible way. There were 2 boys involved.
Originally, Mr. Meir Frischman admitted it happened, he has since changed his tune (obviously he has since received direction and advice from perhaps the Agudah directors, Rabbonim or Attorneys) and now denies all allegations and has completely removed himself from any & all responsibilities surrounding this situation. He has gone so far as to deny it, and refer to the RAPE as a "rumor".
The police were notified, and Mr. Frischman did NOT have them speak with more than a few people from the camp. Directors who have been in the camp for literally decades were not notified until they returned home after camp was over.

From An Insider: Meanwhile, a simple observation.  We are both familiar with defense mechanisms.  I make observations all the time of new mechanisms that are just that, but masquerade as something else.  The Agudah position, which we know to be fundamentally flawed, is not really a policy at all.  It is a simple effort to cover-up the cover-ups.  They cannot do different, because that would be self-incrimination.

Notice: Re: Dunkin Donuts and it's cholov Yisroel program

 Notice: Hisachdus Harabonim Di'Lakewood is NOT involved in any way in the Dunkin Donuts cholov-yisroel program.

Shmitah and "yivul-Nuch'ri"

Others refrain from using Yivul-Nuch'ri during or after shmitah. There is currently coming product from Israel from Yivul-Nuch'ri. Check the labeling.

Note: Others may eat yivul nuchrei in Eretz Yisroel but not in chu"l

Why no recall from Hisachdus Williamsburgh? because.............Reb Lipa Klein.....

Hisachdus (Williamsburgh) התאחדות בשיטה מאכט נישט קיין ריקאלס אפילו פאר תולעים
התאחדות נאמט נאר אראפ זייער השגחה ועגען געלט זאכען אדער משום כבודו של הרבנים של התאחדות

 Magrover Ruv und Belzer Dayan would have made a recall even on a "sofek".

They would have made a recall on anything item that has the Pardes name.

Shinover, Tartikuv, Sachdus, Magrov, Belz, etc are all nizhar in "netilyas-yuh'dayim" (one hand washes the other) we must protect the monopol / cartel.

Don't be fooled by "Green-house grown" -as even Green house grown is known to have insects, albeit controllable.

Rav Yitzchok Glick Menahel of Hisachdus Harabonim of Brooklyn should have a refuah-shlaimah.

Reb Lipa Klein (Hisachdus PR man) is trying to hold the Kovod of Hisachdus (certifier of Pardes) intact during the crisis of Pardes strawberries that were found to be infested.
He therefore allegedly is calling mashgichim and others with all type of threats re: pardes infested strawberries.


"Green-House Grown"
Green House Grown do have insects-albeit-controllable.

"Triple -Wash" does not remove all insects.

"Triple-Wash" removes the pesticides only not the insects.

Alert: Hisachdus Harabonim of Lakewood- frozen "Pardes" strawberries

"PARDES" frozen strawberries are infested with aphids, etc. 
A Mashgiach could not have missed "aphids". unless he doesn't know how to check!!!!

Their "Bedika" System is a problem.

Pardes strawberries is certified by CRC- Hisachdus Harabonim of Brooklyn, Reb Avrohom Schlesinger says it's חוצפא שעובר כל גבול לשים ההשגח של הרה"ג ר' מרדכי גרוס שליט"א על מוצר עם תולעים 
Hisachdus-Brooklyn also certifies "Gevina" yogurts and they contain "real-fruit". 

CRC- Hisachdus Brooklyn refuse to make a recall as only children and kimpatorins eat it-they are "choilim".

AMI Magazineis showing it's true colors of "Haskalah"? Remove your Yarmulkah / Shtreimel when reading AMI magazine

Moshe Mendelson, influenced greatly the Haskalah movement.

Yet again, Ami Magazine have shown their true colors and exposed their subtle, open orthodox agenda. 

Yitzchok Frankfurter in last week's editorial casts doubt upon the veracity of סיפורי צדיקים and in his sly, cunning manner attempts to portray גדולי ישראל of bygone generations as mere mortals who are prone to moments of madness where their levels of עבודת השם are severely compromised.

This perhaps explains Mr.Frankfurter's lack of Yiddishe sensitivity in making reference to some of our youth in denigrating terms.

The ציבור is encouraged to follow the guidance of our רבנים and avoid taking this magazine into our homes.

Alert by Lakewood Hisachdus Harabonim

We don't know of any of Ferrara Pan candies that are acceptably kosher to Lakewood consumers.
Yet they are being sold all over Lakewood, even the ones that the Hashgocha was removed.

Lakewood oilum that "isn't makpid about kashrus" go to Cleveland summer camp!!!

"Lakewood isn't makpid about kashrus?"

That's right! That's why the Cleveland camp has no kashrus hashgocha, no pas-yisroel (only on shabbos) , etc.

Do you eat at home all that they are serving in the camp? NO!
Don't throw your children to the sharks.

Alert Monsey Evergreen & Newday Hashgochas let down the kosher consumer

 The "Pre-Checked" produce from "Newday" in Monsey is INFESTED.

It's also being sold at Evergreen Store in Monsey.
[Evergreen owns Newday]

The Hashgocha at Evergreen was aware that the Mashgiach for infestation at Newday was "unqualified".
We are at a loss as to why he allowed it in at Evergreen Store.
There are other questions as well, that remain unanswered to the educated kosher consumer.

We sure hope that they will discontinue the in-house "pre-checked" at both stores.
