Consumer Kashrut Alerts

The following kashrus announcement is from a newspaper advertisement by Rabbi Binyamin Gruber dated September 12, 2007 and additional information recieved by the editor.

Due to the difficult halachos of Shmita, Rabbi Binyamin Gruber is withholding his heshshar on all produce imported from Israel {Alei Katif) during the year of shmitta.
Ed. note: These products are continuing to be certified by Chug Chasam Sofer(Benei Brak), KAJ, Rabbi Efrati (Jerusalem), Mehadrin Jerusalem, Bedatz Beltz (Israel), Shaaris Yisrel, Batatz London, and Rabbi Kaminetzky at Alei Katif.
More information on shmitta can be found at www.kashrut.com/consumer/vegetables/#SCHMITTA
Ed note #2: People need to check with their Rabbis to be informed as to what hashgachas are acceptable and CAREFULLY check hashgachas on the packaging of Israel produce before purchasing.
