If you don’t trust a rabbi because you don’t know who he is,
then why are you trusting the anonymous people posting at this blog?July 9, 2015 4:26 pm at 4:26 pm #1091136nfgo3Member
There was a shop I used to frequent that posted a hechsher from “Vaad Harabbonim of Long Island.” I did some checking and discovered that there is no such Vaad. The shop was renovated, and the “VHLI” hechsher was replaced by the “Cup-K” hechsher. I assumed that since the shop was willing to post a phony hechsher once, it would do so again. Additionally, the “Cup-K” name is confusingly similar to the respectable and legitimate “Kof-K” hechsher, which made me suspicious. I have no further information about “Cup-K,” but my experience with it leads me not to trust it.
And to Sage of Chelm’s comment about trusting people on this blog: I don’t trust any of them, with the possible exception of myself.July 10, 2015 3:02 am at 3:02 am #1091137ItcheSrulikMember
The rav hamachshir is in the business of certifying fleishig restaurants that are owned by Jews and open on shabbos (and in at least one case I know, serve wine with no shomer shabbos staff). As far as I know, all his hashgacha is good for is that all packaged foods used by the restaurant are certified by someone else and that they sell their chametz for Pesach (if Jewish).
