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


We just visited a physical Rehab Center [including pulmonary rehab]in Jackson, next to NPGS.

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.

Note: Located in the southern part of Lakewood, see  http://yudelstake.blogspot.com/2015/11/in-need-of-kosher-rehab-center.html

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.

We are in the "Hashgocha-gesheft" not in the recall business.

 We don't issue recalls.
Mistakes happen.
Reb Shimon Schwab, OB"M said, he relies on those that issue recalls for kashrus.

שהחיינו "Gefen" [Kedem] company is the first to undertake a kashrus re-call without waiting for the Hashgocha to "Kratz" and not make a recall.

Subject: Alert regarding  Gefen Cholent Beans
To whom it may concern,
It has come to our attention that our Chulent Mix  date code # 091218 as well as #090518 and # 090522 has been found to have some instances of infestation. [there may be other lot numbers as well]

This may be the result of a hot summer season or other causes. We are addressing this with our growers.

In light of our high standards of Kashrus and quality, we would like to take a precautionary measure and pull all above mentioned product from the shelves and replace with new product which has been checked and cleared as clean.

Please get in touch with your sales rep for a full credit and we'll replace with fresh product as soon as we are assured of the cleanliness and quality.
Thank you for your assistance and attention to this matter. We appreciate your continued business.

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.
