In many recent shiurim in a Monsey Kolel

" The Kolel in Monsey was "machshil" klal yisroel 

by bringing in unqualified individuals to spew their venom re: infestation.

Both of the speakers are polished orators & can talk about insects but know nothing about the choimer hu'issur nor do the know the facts or the halachas. They'll quote chazal, Ramchal, chofetz chaim, etc but insects? gur'nisht.

They proclaimed "there is no problem with insects".

As Chazal say, " we can create 150 reasons to permit the sheretz".

Just because someone has few dollars to support a Kolel, does that give him the right to be mach'shil klal yisroel? R"L- 
A real Shandah to the Kolel.

BMG's kashrus Organization made an attempt to fleece from a meat purveyor 
"protection money" to the tune of an annual fee of $60,000.00 plus other overrides. Professional thugs!

And for that pay-off they would allow him only to sell pre-packs in Lakewood, no sales to butchers, caterers, restaurants, etc. An additional pay-off will come a later date for that approval. Professional thugs.

What is the justification to charge exorbitant fees for hashgocha?

BMG's kashrus Organization is fleecing the owners of food establishments, etc heavy thousands of dollars unjustifiably.

The owners pay it because they use mafia tactics and threats.

They also pay it in order to receive a hetter to serve anything and everything under any circumstances without "any regard to kashrus ramifications".

Kashrus "Alert": תושבי ואורחים בלייקוואד-PIZZA storeis are also one that violates

Kashrus alert: All BMG's KCL Establishments including Pizza stores.

It has become a practice instituted by BMG's kashrus certifiers to use market "infested" product.

They tell the food service establishment to rinse and blend the infested product and use it in anything and everything.

There is absolutely no Heter for this, even if one is a "kahl" קל in infestation.

The workers are building on this treif "minhag" with a "lumdis" and use it in all of their dishes "as is" without rinsing and grinding.

When the Sushi chinese man was using the fresh infested herbs in the 4th st pizza store for his sushi. When BMG's kashrus certifier was asked "pishat" his response was "the goi used it by mistake".

The הפקירות has no limits. The chinese worker lives upstairs, there is no mashgiach that can have any control (besides the cash register). Who knows what he is bringing in from his upstairs apartment, for Lakewood oilum to be "mitamtum" themselves and their families?

Don't eat from any of BMG's kosher certifiers establishments.

Commercially Cleaned "iceberg" Lettuce must Still be Checked!




Commercially Cleaned "iceberg" Lettuce must Still be Checked! [partially corrected version]

Kosher Agencies say "Yes" All year.


Chicago – The kashrus world is unanimous in requiring lettuce to be checked for insects. Agencies mistakenly  accepted the notion that pre-washed (bagged) iceberg lettuce is acceptable from any source, even if it is not certified as kosher.  This is because the method of commercially cleaning leafy lettuces is not sufficient to remove the insects typically found in iceberg lettuce.

However, in recent weeks, says the cRc, lettuce coming from specific regions in California have been more heavily infested than usual, and that the cleaning methods in use have not always been successful in removing all insects from the lettuce.

This has caused some kashrus agencies to temporarily remove certification from a number of brands of iceberg lettuce, of which the Fresh Express brand is the most prominent.

A cRc statement noted: “We have not been able to independently confirm these results on a national scale, but accept the findings of these hechsherim based on the research of experienced Mashgichim in multiple cities.

Accordingly, the cRc recommends that for the remainder of  2015, consumers nationally should either (a) purchase iceberg lettuce which bears reliable kosher certification, or (b) wash and have experts inspect iceberg lettuce (fresh or bagged)

Lakewood-Kashrus eye opener


Interesting, every product in your home was manufactured in a goi'ishe company. nuhr vos, you are relying on the capable Hashgocha and their capable Mashgiach.

Also Interesting- is the fact that finkel who was frum, gave a daf yomi shiur, was the baal koreh, etc yet he gave treif to all of New York & Lakewood customers. Doheny in Los Angeles, also a frum owner that gave treif to all of Los Angeles.

A kosher butcher in Frankfurt, Germany, recently admitted in court that he sold doctored tons of non-kosher meat for years as glatt to all of the observant Jews.

There was the 4-5 episodes in Boro Park, Flatbush, Queens, etc areas where frum owners were selling treif to their customers.

All Goi'ish owned food service or eateries that had a capable Hashgocha and a trained capable Mashgiach was not found to be selling treif.

Bottom line? Where can one eat kosher food in Lakewood?
Where you either rely on the owner or on a capable hashgocha and capable mashgiach.

Rabbi G.Finkel seems to have a knack to  love the ones that are machshil people R"L.

Rabbi G.Finkel seems to have a knack to  have a "hatred" of the "emmes" and ones that know what they are doing and are the true experts.

From an Email re: kashrus in Lakewood

 Anonymous said...
KCL and cohorts are besieging everyone re: Reb Yudel giving a hashgocha to a place belonging to a goi.

Interesting, every product in your home was manufactured in a goiyeshe company. nuhr vos, you are relying on the capable Hashgocha and their capable Mashgiach.

Now KCL says that for Lakewood yungeleit it's a different madreigah. Eateries, restaurants, etc. one should only on the frum owner and not on a capable hashgocha with a capable trained mashgiach.

So why is KCL giving hashgochas to frum owned establishments? Why is KCL charging fees those establishments for a hashgocha that KCL says is not needed because it's a frum owner.

Interesting also is the fact that finkel who was frum, gave a daf yomi shir, was the baal koreh, etc yet he gave treif to all of New York & Lakewood customers. Doheny in Los Angeles, also a frum owner that gave treif to all of Los Angeles.

A kosher butcher in Frankfurt, Germany, admitted in court that he sold doctored tons of non-kosher meat for years as glatt to all of the observant Jews.

There was the 4-5 episodes in Boro Park, Flatbush, Queens, etc areas where frum owners were selling treif to their customers.

The bottom line is it all depends on the Hashgocha and the mashgiach.

The תכלת issue clarified

WHY I DO NOT WEAR תכלת (MUREX DYE)
The sefer עין התכלת quotes a message which the בית הלוי sent to the author.
הגאבד"ק בריסק דליטא שיחיה מסר כל טעמו ונימוקו בדבר מיאונו במצות
התכלת לאחד ממיודעינו שיכתוב ויאמר לנו משמו בזה הלשון כמע"ל לא   ביאר
בדבריו מה זאת מצא אחר שנשכח, אם מציאת הדג או הוצאת צבעו, ורק אחרי
אשר כמע"ל יברר זאת, היינו היה בזה דבר הנשכח והוא מצאה, אז נהיה
מחויבים לשמוע אליו וללבשו, אכן אם נאמר כי הדג היה במציאות, וגם הוצאת
צבעו היה ידוע בכל זמן מהזמנים שעברו עלינו מעת שפסקה התכלת מישראל,
ועל כל זה לא לבשוהו אבותינו ואבות אבותינו, הרי הוא כאילו יש לנו בקבלה
ומסורה מאבותינו כי זה הדג וצבעו איננו החלזון והתכלת אף שהוא בכל
הםימנים שסמנו בו חז"ל, כי אפילו נרבה כחול ראיות לא יועילו נגד הקבלה
והמסורה, ורק אחרי אשר יברר לנו כי דג זה או מלאכת צבעו נפסק ונשכח
מציאתו או ידיעתו בשום זמן מהזמנים ונפסקה בזה הקבלה אז יהיה לנו דברי
ההלכה לראיה, ע"כ

From an Email, the answer is yes-at no charge.

Reb Yudel,
I heard from a reliable source that you would consider giving a Mehadrin hashgocha provided they use Positive products, Mashgiach is properly trained in bedikas toloyim, and the owner is mekabel not to talk in shul-| at no charge for the Hashgocha.?

BMG's KCL does it again- four corners again

I was just at the James store and there is no Jewish worker in sight !

KCL, do you hear me?
even a non frum worker wasn't there.
We have seen by KCL establishments these so called jewish workers acting as kcl mashgichim working the cash register while not wearing tzitzes among other questionable behaviour for a mashgiach.

Kcl does it again!

Just a ton of Mexicans and the sushi lady

KCL's take on kashrus


Now KCL says that for Lakewood yungeleit it's a different madreigah. Eateries, restaurants, etc. KCL rightfully admits that they aren't qualified to give a hashgocha to a goi'ishe owned establishment. KCL also says they don't have capable trained mashgichim. 

Therefore one should only rely on the frum owner. 

So why is KCL giving hashgochas to frum owned establishments? 
Why is KCL charging fees those establishments for a hashgocha that KCL says is not needed because it's a frum owner.

The bottom line is it really all depends on the Hashgocha and the mashgiach.

Sadly in Lakewood, the KCL is giving hashgochas to eateries that are serving non-kosher. Some or most of Their mashgichim are not capable.

KCL allows mashgichim that have haircuts that the "pai'os" are cut off, they don't wear tzitzes, but they can work the "cash-register", even if they aren't shomer shabbos all the time.

They allow flour to be stored in the open outside in 90+ degree weather and don't require sifting.
KCL allows products manufactured in plants that require experts in kashering with questionable hashgochas.

KCL allows many products to be used in restaurants and caterers kitchens as long as the customer doesn't see it.

Who may have a say in a Sh'tuht? al pi Halacha of course
