Alert: Fruits and vegies from Israel.................

Besides the issue of trumois u'maisrois, the issue of infestation is very serious.
Some of the Israeli Hashgochas write on the package that it must be washed, which most Americans see a kosher emblem they (become illiterate) just open and consume.
The Aida charaidus Yerushalem has a new emblem that states clearly the vegetables must be washed prior to consuming, etc.

The fruits and vegetables with the Hashgocha of Rav Efrati may contain insects that will not come off in washing. Also any frozen fruits or vegies with his hashgocha should not be consumed at this time.

UPDATE: To Lakewood's Moisdois, menhalim and principals

Edison’s amazing mother          











WE Afghans believe two things should be respected in life: mothers and teachers. 

Here is a story of a very kind and hero mother-teacher: 
      One day Thomas Edison came home and gave a paper to his mother. He told her, “My teacher gave this paper to me and told me to only give it to my mother.”
     His mother’s eyes were tearful as she read the letter out loud to her child: Your son is a genius. This school is too small for him and doesn’t have enough good teachers for training him. Please teach him yourself.
     After many, many years, after Edison’s mother died and he was now one of the greatest inventors of the century, one day he was looking through old family things. Suddenly he saw a folded paper in the corner of a drawer in a desk. He took it and opened it up. On the paper was written: Your son is addled [mentally ill]. We won’t let him come to school any more.
     Edison cried for hours and then he wrote in his diary: “Thomas Alva Edison was an addled child that, by a hero mother, became the genius of the century.” ************************************************************************
ALERT: Lakewood "roshei moisdois" medicates their students with "Ritalin", THEY RECEIVE GOVERNMENTAL FUNDING, WHILE PERMANENTLY DAMAGING YOUR CHILD.

LAKEWOOD MENAHALIM AND PRINCIPALS PUSH MANY OF THE STUDENTS FOR PROFESSIONAL HELP-The students don't need any of as they are just fine-BUT THE SCHOOLS GET FUNDING FOR THAT.  They cause permanent damage to your children because they are making $$$$$$$ That is criminal and should be exposed.

Note: ALL Cholov Stam / Cholov Akum =(besides Germany) CHOLOV TREIFE! R'L- The consumer has nothing to rely on

RE: Cholov Stam-Cholov Akum is actually חלב טריף Per Reb Moshe, Z"L Rav Eliyashev Z"L and Rav Shmuel Wosner Z"L.

Rav Moshe Feinstein in Y"D 1, #20-21 [End of #21 ]states that these procedures make the cow a treifah [and one may not purchase from such a farmer]. Today with the farms in the USA keeping accurate records, all cholov akum (stam) is actually treif. (The procedured cows are 4-8%, shishim is 1.66+-%)
The European Hashgochas mistakenly believe that they don't have the problem because the Veterinarians say "in Europe we don't have those problems". The cold facts are that europe has the problem just as much as the USA.

Alert: Shatnez notice


Update: Vaad Tzedokah-the rest of the story

From an Email
Yudel, It may warrant an article;
1- There is no basis in halacha according Rabbi Dov Kahan head of Bais Din mayshorim in lakewood has given 23 shiurim on hilchos tzedokah in lakewood. 
2- The vaadam may have a justification that it's valid for one year as circumstances do change.  BUT they not have any right to put any limits on how long one may collect in the area. 
3- An  isshur that he's not a ramai is sufficient for the whole USA, why does each one put you through the mill? 
4- And why does each vaad charge a fee of $40.00-$100.00 and you could come twice a year. [Nice income for the vaad]
5- One must hang around for the isshuer 1-3 days. On whose cheshbon?

6- Baltimore / Star-k vaad tzedokah takes a 25% cut from the checks and vouchers. I don't know what others are taking.  
Baltimore may commonly have 10-12 collectors at a time @ 2 weeks. Each one raising $3-5000.00 and the vaad takes 25%. Do the math, $15,000.00 @ 2 weeks for the Star-k vaad  tzedokah [$350,000.00 annually] (besides their charge for @ isshur)
[In Baltimore they instituted the voucher system almost 95%.]  

7- The vaadam check with each other re the collector. So why does each one make them wait for the isshur and another charge?
8- By the chasidim there  is "NO" such a thing as a vaad tzedokah and DON'T need any isshur. 
9- What right for the vaad to decide on a recommended amount?
10- Because of ramaim one is not over on lavim and esais if you don't give any of them tzedokah. With the isshurs in place if one doesn't give he's transgressing lavs and esais. 

10- Where is the brocha of עשר בשביל שתתעשר? By the chasidim, "No isshur no vouchers" everyone is welcome not like sedom.

Defining Chasidishe Shechita


That the shoichet is a superior Yirai Shomayim than other shoichtem?
NO!

That he is a better shoichet than others?
NO!

That he has sharper, smoother knives than others?
NO!

That the shoichet goes to the mikvah prior to the days shechita?
NO! They don't always, yet they shecht.

That the shoichet davens with a minyan 3 times a day?
NO!

That his wife doesn't drive a car?
NO!

That he wears the Chasidish clothing?

NO! Not Always.

He is what Chazal called a Chosid?
NO!

So what defines chasidishe shechita?

Years ago there was a dispute among the Rabonim as to what type of knife to use for shechita?

1) שני צדדים sharpened on both sides of the sharp side of the blade or 2) צד אחד Sharpened on one side only (the other side being straight with the back of the blade.

The chasidim insisted on 2 sides שני צדדים.

That is the style of sharpening common these days by practically all shoichtem.

So in fact all shechita is Chasisidesh shechita regardless of his dress, mikvah, friends, etc.

Chasideshe Shechita?

A few years ago I called up a place where  simcha I was invited to was being made.  When I asked
whose hashgacha the place had,  the reply was "We use only Chassidishe shechita."

I then said to the person who had proudly told me this and was sure it would impress me,

 "Do you know that when Rubashkin was operating they were producing the following kinds of meat all as chasidishe schechita.
 1.  Bais Yosef, 
2.  What we call glatt 
3. ordinary kosher,
4. Hallal and
5. treif,
and it was all Chasidishe shechita,  because the only people schechting there were chassidim."  There was silence on the other end of the phone.

Lakewood- A local physical Rehab Center, It's almost an hour closer to NY-

A Jewish Community Rehab center in the Northern part of Lakewood. With the Rt #9 traffic, it's a half hour closer to New York.

The"Glatt" Meat Shortage in the USA high prices v. the solution


Solution:
 The average output of a Shechita in the USA should be as follows:
Glatt- 12-18%        Non-Glatt 25-30%

1-2 additional Boidkim or inspectors required for the non-glatt production. Of course the non-glatt would require additional time & personnel for the deveining (treiboring) and salting.
       
 Kosher Consumers in the USA are 30-35% glatt, 65-70%  non-glatt.
    
  The current glatt productions it would be very economical to utilize the additional 25-30% of the non-glatt as well.
   
    This would alleviate the meat shortage in a very short period of time of 2-3 weeks.

       This would also cause a glut in the kosher beef, which would bring down the price of beef to the kosher consumer.

     The Orthodox Union aka “OU” till a few years ago also certified non-glatt beef.
  
   It would be advantageous for the Supermarket chains across the USA to besiege the “OU” to step up to the plate and bring the cost of beef to the kosher consumer to a market more in line with other beef.

    The consumer in general is facing economic pressures at this time in being able to afford their basic shopping needs.

     The “OU” can do this on their own and they owe it to the kosher consumer.

Lakewood שלום בית-Therapists (terrorists) are not the solution, they are the root of the problem!


Advice on Responding to a Restraining Order


Unfortunately many women are receiving bad advice from therapists, attorneys and Pseudo Rabbonim who know nothing about Halachah. Their only interest is to pander their client and keep them satisfied. They will never advise their client to do the proper thing according to Halacha, when the client will not be happy with this advice. 
               The result has been a large increase in the issuance of RO’s to Yeshiva Leit. The proper response is to go to Bais Din and request that they commence proceedings to render the sender of the RO a מורדת. If the Bais Din sees that there is no justification for the RO and the issuer does not retract they will commence with the proceedings. The details of what Bais Din has to do are described in Even HaEzer Siman 77. 
As more women get declared a מורדת the reputation of the advisors will deteriorate since we can now quantify that they are giving bad advice and it is producing negative consequences to their clients.

A second benefit is that after the proceedings are finalized there are financial advantages such as no KESUBAH (see Siman 77 for more details)

A third benefit is after 12 months you can give a GET on your terms, and remarry according to most Poskim without a HETER MEIOH RABBONUM if she refuses to accept the GET (see Siman 77 for more details).

A fourth benefit is public relations “He left her because she was a מורדת sounds better than “she threw him out”.
I hope and encourage anyone who has received a RO to go forward with this advice and may הקב"ה give you ס"ד to end these issues with Shalom.

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


When the system of hashgocha for infestation is broken-It doesn't matter which Lot number.

Kosher consumer take heed? and eat only the KOSHER GARDENS or POSITIVE brands

From an Email:

Kashrus Alert:
Stay away from all fresh broccoli & or non-reliable greenhouse grown. period.

Rav Belsky zt"l was against certifying non greenhouse grown broccoli and didn't allow the OU to certify fresh broccoli as their washing it doesn’t bring it down to miyut hamatzut its muchzak be’tolaim

Rav Belsky told me that consumers should purchase ONLY reliable greenhouse grown.

 Now that he has passed away the OU started certifying fresh broccoli. We as consumers are expecting Kashrus standards to be raised to an acceptable level as time goes on but it seems some hechsherim are intent on bringing standards lower.

NOTE: Terras Gardens brand, is sold in the south Florida market at this time

What's new in Queens kashrus

The Kosher Consumers Union is closely monitoring and checking the infestation levels of the numerous kosher certifiers  in the tri-state including Vaad Ha'Rabbonim of Queens. 

 We the Kosher Consumers Union are currently checking produce under the various kosher certifiers including the VHQ and those Hechsherim that work together with the the ones that are not reliable in checking for infestation will unfortunately not be spared of the forthcoming videos of excessive VHQ infestation. 

We ask that kashrus organizations not work in junction with those that are not in line in reliability of insect infestation e.g.VHQ, etc so that we will not be forced to expose the other kashrus organization parties involved in catered events. 

Our (the consumers Queens) current objective is to upgrade the standards of the VHQ, and are not looking for other hechsherim to suffer from the collateral damage.

Thank you to all other Hechsherim for their understanding of the situation as Queens kashrus concerns are at its peak and it is time for change. The Consumers of Queens have voted unanimously.

We Remain,

The Kosher Consumers Union

PS next is a neighboring community

Freshly checked [Perfect image brand]-Edible flowers-Orchids Highly infested


ALERT: Canned pineapple in its own juice.

ALERT: All Canned pineapple in its own juice, is infested with various insects.

As is well known, Pineapples do have insects in the crown and in the brown parts of the skin peel.

Some Pineapples were found to have have mealybugs  past the brown area as well, it must be checked by experts in infestation.

Now it was discovered another insect issue with canned pineapple. "Packed-in-its-own-juice". The canned pineapple is raw not cooked, how do they get the "Packed-in-its-own-juice"?

They take the skin / peel, etc with all of the inherent insects and cook it to obtain the pineapple-juice.

Is the somewhat viscous juice filtered? If yes, with what size filter?
We asked some of the heimish certifiers and they refuse to respond.
