Does this mean that Destinations by Zablocki has finally had it with his long time rav hamachshir R' Zusha Blech? Last year Pesach there was kimat a riot by enraged bnei Torah against Zablocki in the Poconos over total lack of kashrus standards. Zusha's rosh mashgichim hung out in "Open Orthodox" circles & under him were a bunch of bummy Israeli bochurim. It was so bad that Zusha was forced to send his son with a new crew to throw them out. There was not much news filtering out of this year's Pesach by Zablocki because there were no more bnei Torah around who would pay thousands of dollars yet still not have kosher food. The Israeli bums went to Pesach this year in Virginia where they kept up their tradition of making sure the food is not kosher. How many caterers are going to burn their bridges with guests by using these mashgichim?

I have news for you. Destinations is NOT for Bnei Torah no matter how kosher the essen is.

The staff are specifically chosen as the most extreme Left modern orthodox who set up all the programming that way. The women staff wear pants. But they are not stupid so they will have a couple of YU rabbis with black hats & one token yungerman in chassidishe levush so they can also get paying customers who are frum.

There are organized taaruvos of boys & girls of all ages with loud rock music being blasted.

They facilitate non-Jewish-owned spa services on Pesach that include chometz & treif edible face mask.

Most programming for adults is shpitz batlonus & sometimes even very problematic in Hilchos Shabbos veYomtov. And this is assuming that the comedy stuff has no shmutz al pi the Rishonim on kol hamenavel es piv ...

The Israeli bums were under a different rosh mashgichim this year, an elter bochur who was seemingly either paid off by the caterer to look the other way from many sort kashrus violations or did it for free in case the caterer complains to the hashgocho that he is a nudnik.

The elter bochur's brother is a big menuvol who was also involved in Pesach hotels, preferably ones that had issurei Oreisseh like mix dancing with alcohol being served. What he personally did over there was so disgusting that it cannot be spelled out here. There was even something he could have been arrested for. UOJ was going to go after him but the menuvol just happened to have retired from the "industry" in time to spare him from UOJ's wrath. You can still see the menuvol around town however because he is a freeloader who reads the Yated / Jewish Press list of annual yeshiva & organization dinners. He shows up at the shmorg to stuff his face with free dinner almost every night.

At one Zablotzki hotel recently, Rav Blech had a mashgiach stationed in the wine room whenever it was open to control who touched the bottles.

But at the same time, a Zablotzki employee whose only purpose there was to be in charge of all those same wines was a character. He was one of the few people with access to the room even when locked. His wife wears pants in the hotel dining room & when he was going outside the hotel, his yarmulka somehow vanished into thin air.

All the above does not make one a mechalel Shabbos or the wine into stam yeinom or Yayin naisech.

Strange that you are the only one who knows about this. You must either tag along with him or are his driver.

I have been at dinners of CB & affiliates where a modern orthodox, weird looking shnorer shows up exactly as described. He has no shame. He refills his plates & sits down at the tables. He looks very out of place & when people try to make small talk with him he openly admits he is there just to fill his boich. I can't say for sure it's him because I am not in the loop of what he used to do for a living.

What is strange is that any time a reader posts a comment that might even remotely be on the same page as Yudel Shain hashkofos in identifying scoundrels in the kashrus world, there emerges without fail one or two tchynik hockers who have a problem with the comment. The hocking is immediate because the hockers hang out here ready to pounce in an instant. In my opinion that is more uncivil than the fellow who knows where to find free food.

1:14 pm, I have news for you and this is from a big posek I asked.

There is a large population of people who do not drive on Shabbos but the women wear pants & they do not believe in all the Yud Gimmel Ikkrai Emunah. They run the spectrum from Right Wing Conservative to Traditional to "Renewal" movement to Open Orthodox and some of them are even in the Left fringe of Modern Orthodox. Anyone in the first four groupings is immediately possul lehalacha in all inyanei kashrus just like a goy. The Left fringe of Modern Orthodox is also possul if they openly hold of the other 4 groups & their philosophies.

i hope for zablocki's sake that the mashgiach was not stealing many bottles of the most expensive wine selections, just like the higher end snacks were being stolen by these israelis before the guests could have any benefit from them whatsoever being that the snacks did not make it to the tea room after being guarded by the mashgichim for kashrus purposes

The ad shows that Destinations is partnering here with some other organizations. The symbol of the AVOIDA ZORAH "Buddha" statue is the "Kosher Guru" entity owned by caterer Gabe Boxer. Was Boxer the bulvan who was thrown out of Woodmere for violations including a truck making a delivery by a shul on Shabbos before kiddush?

Poco NoNo said...

The rosh mashgichim over the Israelis last year was also an altera bochur. During the year he has shtellers in places with women "poskim", etc.

Not much can be done about modern & open bochurim except to shrei gevalt! that arrogant hashgochos like Z. Blech should not expect to get away with being considered haymish when hiring these types as mashgichim. And Z. Blech is the worst offender of them all because his shutef in his hashgocho on food factories is a musmach of YCT. Why do the "yeshivishe" machers in Forshay & Wesley Hills not have a problem with him?

That's takka very grubb that Boxer has painted a homburg & peyos on the Buddha idol. If I was the rav hamachshir I would demand he get rid of that ridiculous logo.

Isn't Boxer very high up in Pomegranate? Is he the mechaber of the grubb boasting of Pomegranate that they have a "Meatologist" on staff? I suppose that's to help extreme fressers with their tartimar bassar.

There are roshei yeshiva who complain that the Yated should not be running that Meatologist ad that glorifies fressing.

Zusha's partner just got remarried to a Canadian woman whose family is from a Conservative temple in Winnepeg. She dresses not appropriate especially for a "rabbi's" wife. He is making his rebbi Avi Weiss very proud. She has opened a division of the hashgocho up North. They are offering lowball prices with their substandard hashgocho to compete with OU / COR / MK / VK, etc. There goes Canadian kashrus.

"There is a large population of people who do not drive on Shabbos but the women wear pants & they do not believe in all the Yud Gimmel Ikkrai Emunah."

Despite that there is no legitimate way around this in halacha, the Queens Vaad lets these kind of establishment owners operate with no mashgiach.

One year for every Friday there was a place on Long Island under Queens Vaad where the only Jew working there was a Conservative woman wearing pants. And she told customers she is the mashgiach!

Just another chapter of Chaim Schwartz saying YES MASTERS! to whatever his modern orthodox masters at the Queens Vaad tell him to cover up.

These real outrageous examples the Queens Vaad will only do out in yehupitz of Long Island / Westchester where they think no one frum will catch it.

It Queens itself they make sure to do a better job covering up by only allowing koifrim who once upon a time were in YU while arguing that "he was orthodox his whole life" despite the people having official positions in non-orthodox movements.

News.....from deh groiseh Posek

Did the Groiseh Posek say that if they are from the Arbaah Avos but the dress yeshivish and are not mechalel Shabbat then they are totally not possul linyanaiy kashrus and considered heimish and the wine is OK?

How about if they only shtitz the arbaah avos but the don't believe in it?

What if they share the same hotel for a Yom Tov? How about just a weekend?

What is the Groise psak if they wear pants and are not mechalel Shabbat but reject the arbaah avos?

How about if their Roov is fin deh groiseh groiseh modernaah?

How about if we don't know?

Does covering the hair change anything?

Would not believe that anyone even the ignorant would say or imply that YU is Orthodox.

Just shows the brainwash effect.

Queens said...

In other words, there are people who left their YU identification behind to join non-orthodox movements who he Queens Vaad is covering it up to give them the benefits of Yidden with chezkas kashrus.

They even allowed a Reform temple rabbi to put up a teudah of de facto co-certification with the Queens Vaad at the coffee bar inside the New Hyde Park pizza store. The pizza store still exists but they removed the coffee bar after a tummel was made. He wrote it in lashon hakoidesh mentioning his semicha from "Yeshivas Rabbeinu Yitzchok Elchonon" but making no mention that he left YU for JTS, was a Conservative rabbi in Little Neck for 26 years and then got a shteller at a Reform temple in Great Neck.

There is also a VHQ client allowed to operate with no mashgiach despite that he became a board member of the non-orthodox UTJ movement.

It's a "good" thing the modern orthodox Queens Vaad rabbis have "yeshivishe" figurehead Chaim Schwartz to do their dirty work for them! It makes it easier to cover things up for public perceptions.

Another over the top reaction from Chaim or his OU mashgiach friend that is proof that the truth hurts.
