Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Last week, a daughter of Rav Sholom Ber Sorotzkin who heads Kollelim Ateres Shlomo was married. Attending the chasenah were Rav Aaron Leib Shteinman Shlita, Rav Chaim Kanievsky Shlita, Rav Gershon Edelstein Shlita, Rav Nissim Karelitz Shlita and other rabbonim and rebbes.

According to the weekly BaKehilla, the rabbonim of the kollel network, Ateres Shlomo established a hashgacha for the event, and in light of “the success” they plan to continue offering the kashrus for the kollel network and its mosdos. It is explained that all of the catered events held by these affiliated organizations will be under the supervision of this new kashrus provider.

  1. The last thing needed in BB is a new hashgacha. There are already multiple hashgachos in existance that clearly are sufficiently machmir because each of the rabbonim named in the article has previously attended (and presumably eaten at) simchos in BB without any difficutly. Could someone explain what is NEW that required the creation of a new hashgacha for this event? With such an “All-Star” lineup of gadolim in attendance, one might think that there would be sufficient expertise in hilchot kashrus to handle any shaiylah that might arise.

  2. I think it’s great to have lots of Kashuruth hashgachos. The more there are, the more we Jews feel that the world is becoming more of a Jewish-like place. One hashgacha for the world???

  3. The fact that many gedolim attended a simcha has nothing to do with the kashrus of the simcha, it’s common amongst the gedolim to attend a simcha to wish Mazel Tov to the baal simcha and not even eat anything, perhaps just drinking a bit of shnapps for l’chaim
