Kashruth Police - Update I

I have an appointment scheduled for August fourth, to speak with a very powerful leader in American Orthodoxy, regarding the establishment of Kashruth standards and policies in North America. I spoke to him a few weeks ago just briefly, and asked him I could call him to talk about it. He warned me at the time, however, that he might not be able to answer all of my questions, but he assured me that he would at least steer me in the right direction and point me to the right people to ask. While he holds a very influential position in terms of setting standards in many important aspects of the lives of American Orthodox Jews, he obviously does not control the day-to-day lives of individuals, or the conduct or standards of different organizations.

Be very careful. Kasharus is big busine$$ and today very competitive. There is no love lost between most kasharus organizations and those rea$on$ are pretty clear. Certifying agencies and their don’t like it when someone questions their creditability. Proceed with caution. I have seen (unreliable) rabbis go after very good people who have tried to uncover the truth. It is a very unfortunate thing and motivated by greed, politics and defiantly not l'sheim shamayim. If you have any Jewish communal aspirations these rabbis have great memories and are very unforgiving. Only after 120 will they be held accountable. I wish you only hatzlocha and bracha.
