    though he seems to be vague on hashgocho maybe its time for lubavitcher shechita to go down the tubes i dunno

    lubavitch shechita is not the top dog in that plant they have to listen to the rav hamachshir of the plant

    in other words the quality of lubavich shechita has no bearing on the plant (as the top dog can generally be machmir on a hashgocho)

    Highly impressed

    lubavitcher shechita

    was never that important in the plant.

    it’s about time someone else comes up with a serious lubavitcher shechita.

    It is a great new step in the repair the lives of many Jews.
    H-shem should give you much hatzlocha.in all of the challenges mentioned.
    H-shem should release the :Rubashkin family from their hardships generated by this situation. and bring them success for the future.

    Sruly Besser is a son of Reb Shlomo and a grandson of Reb Chatzkel, ZGZ. He is a true professional, and a real friend to Lubavitch. Halevai we should more like him in the Charedi media.

    to Number 8 he is not a relative of of Chaztkal Besser, and he does not have much to do with Lubavich. Besides for his bothers learning in YTT of Montreal, It’s a nice article but a bit too soon; I brought Hershy Freidman to the Rubashkins, this was not a charitable move, it was a business move, The Rubashkin family is still taking a real beating and are victims of Rishoim. To display “The new boss of Agri” this soon may be a bit hurtful Reb S.M Rubashkin does not have basic living expenses, let alone legal expenses. This… Read more »

    In my last post I was mistaken about who was related to Besser, Yes the auther Sruly Ben Shlomo Ben Chaztkal Besser, They are from the mother grand children of Rebitzin Menucha Rochel, and where very close with Bies Harav. Freidmans brothers learned in TTL montreal.

    Hershey Friedman never learned in Lubavitch but in Satmar. He means no hurt to Rubashkin but is actually helping them.

    Besser comes from a Chabad home, his father, Reb Shleima is a real, chassidishe hartz, today a Rov in Clifton. A special person, kind of a cosmpolitan chassid.
