Update: The 5 Towns Kashrus
We had some individuals make some visits on their own to some of the 5 town establishments. We obtained samples of some their infested vegies, etc. among other items of interest. BTW- We have been to numerous 5 Town Vaad establishments, we were not happy at all.
The 5 Towns Kashrus was never one to pride itself with transparency.
One will find that there may be an establishment that has an acceptable standard of kashrus in spite of being under the 5 Towns Vaad.
The most blatant area that stands out as unacceptable is "infestation". The Vaad standard consists of camouflage. They will show one or two establishments that "happen" to be in order, while the rest are serving non-kosher vegetables, etc.
The mere fact that the 5 Town VaadS Administrator / Orator will quote from Rav Moshe Vaye's Sefer or from the Chofetz Chaim, Ramchal, etc. does not nothing to justify all of the non-kosher under their Hashgocha.
We are interested in giving a guided tour of 5 Town establishments to a few serious individuals, to see behind the beautiful orated speeches. The Press is invited.
Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We don't have any dates yet for the eye-opening visits.
The 5 Town Administrator is trying to mend some fences in the meantime, calling it "upgrades" in kashrus.
Where is the Queens Vaad in all of their catching up? They always claim they are the Tzadikim compared to 5 Towns and Lakewood's KCL.
