Now we will pay for 3 Hechsherim! No one thinks of the consumer!

Just on time for pessach

Now there is no excuses not to get Lubavitcher CHK.

Competitive market bh

Good news for the jews

I'm confused
April 8, 2024 7:48 pm

We only eat lubavitch shechita.
Is there 3 now?
It’s nice that this one is only lubavitcher shochtim.
(Until now that didn’t seem to be a requirement of Lubavitch shechita.. I’m happy to support unzer, but also kinda liked the prospect of having options)

Anyways…is there 3 now?

Until now

What do you mean when you write that you only eat Lubavitcher shechita and then you write that this one has only Lubavitcher shochtim?

Not the Bodkim...
Reply to  I'm confused
April 9, 2024 10:47 am

In the second run as well, unfortunately they did not bring Lubavitch Bodkim, which some argue is even more important than the Shochtim…

April 8, 2024 7:49 pm

Is there a mashgiach all the time to make sure no non glatt .mixes in with chabad shechita?

Kudos to Rabbi Y Garelik. Thank you so much.

Amazing to see Reb Gershon Mendel’s hechsher continue
Thank you Rabbi Garelik!

B”H rabbi Osdoba and rabbi Braun are both involved in the chk hechsher so it’s both rabonim!!

April 8, 2024 9:57 pm

Looks like a quality product, happy to see this coming together.

April 8, 2024 10:18 pm

What does Garelik’s hechsher add?

(In gemara the question is put, do you need Yehuda after there is a possuk – yehuda v’od li’kra?)

It’s as if CHK needs to be bolstered by another Lubavitcher hashgacha?!

What is going on???

Reply to  Confused
April 9, 2024 7:12 am

This is standard for kosher meat to have 2 or 3 hechsheirim.

April 8, 2024 11:05 pm

I thought CHK did not allow any other Lubavitch hashgochos on their meat (like Lubavitch-K) and now they added Garelik’s hechsher?

Can Garelik start giving his own hechsher on Lubavitch meat and products or he limited to only adding his hechsher to CHK?

What does he add to CHK???

How does this affect the Lubavitch-K hechsher?

Why did you think that?

April 10, 2024 8:12 pm

They never said they are against additional Lubavitcher hechsheirim.

What new products will David Elliot make?
What cuts of meat will 770 glatt have?

April 8, 2024 11:31 pm

Can colive please publish pictures of all the 770 glatt products available in stores?

Not sure but it says you can order through Springfield group in the article

April 8, 2024 11:33 pm

Can colive please post a poll of among how many lubavitchers who eat only lubavitch meat will eat meat with the new lamed kay certification?

This is lubavitch shechita
April 8, 2024 11:59 pm

Interesting at the first shechita there were 2 Lubavitcher shochtim 1 satmar one ger.
The bodek Sakinim was not lubavitch and bedika pnim was also not. Why is this called lubavitch just to try to make the other look bad. Would like to know which hidurim were instituted. I know they said the deal is that you don’t change anything.
False and misleading info.
A local resident that knows just a bit more.

1 satmer 1 ger? Fake news

April 9, 2024 10:50 am

The 1st and 2nd run both had Lubavitch Shochtim only. The issue is the Bodkim…

Oh gosh can we stop fighting
April 9, 2024 3:49 am

Unfortunately the way things run in the beis din recently and Chabad sometimes also is that we like to cancel our, uh this shita is kfira “es iz pushut hepich di kavaneh…” Putting down pasling , treifing up…. We got to talk like metchen learn how to respect each other, and like big boys figure this out. This sounds like childs play and at the best Mesivta bochurim arguing by the breakfast table… We need our leaders askanim to act like metchen. Just to break the news out meat is kosher just like the Rebbe’s Kos shel bracha. But we… Read more »

Solomon Hecher
April 9, 2024 6:40 am

Regarding Solomon Hechsher which bears the Skver Hecher. Most Skver Chassidim do not eat this hechsher. This is reserved for “others” outside of their community & Costco. They have a different brand for their community which bears a different name and has higher standards of Kashrus. Just for the record.

Hechsher of the whole beis din
April 9, 2024 7:37 am

Both rabonim Osdoba and Braun are on the chk !

April 9, 2024 3:23 pm

what took so long for people to realize shor habor was simply Aarons best with a different label…..

Price for extra hechsher
April 9, 2024 4:14 pm

Nothing is free. When there is an extra hechsher on a product, it is not free. The Garelik hechsher is not free. and when Agri pays for it, you and I end up paying for it. Now, I don’t mind paying a bit more for a better hashgacha, but what am I getting more with the extra hashgacha of Garelik? I fully trust the CHK hashgocha. Does having Garleik’s hashgacha make it “more kosher”?! To be clear, the extra hashgocha is not free and we pay for it by a higher price on the product. Do we need it? If… Read more »

Is it true that Skver shchita has much higher standards than our Lubavitch shchita? I understand that theor own shchita incorporates many chumros that the regular run does not include.

April 10, 2024 9:13 am

Not true. The skver shchita at solomns is the same as ours. In fact, since lubavitch came into the plant, things were improved even more. However, Solomon runs a separate brands called fishel, for extra machmirim, not necessarily for skver.

What hiddurim does this new “ Glatt Chabad’’ incorporate which did not occur in the past under Rabbi Osdobo with Rabbi Segal, if Rabbi Osdobo was satisfied with Agristar for decades what happened to change his position

April 10, 2024 9:11 am

It was spelled out in his letter. Over the years there was less and less cooperation in maintaining standards. “For some time, there have been significant kashrus challenges at the AgriStar plant. Despite our diligent efforts to maintain proper kashrus standards, we encountered resistance from the management at the plant. The management’s lack of support for our representatives made it increasingly difficult to ensure compliance with kashrus protocols. This strained relationship and inconsistent adherence to proper procedures have created an environment detrimental to our kashrus supervision efforts. Despite our longstanding relationship with AgriStar and our extensive efforts to address these… Read more »

Just like more and more people will come to rely on the Greater Brooklyn Eruv under the major Posek Rav G Tzinner which includes CH many residents will eat both Lubavitcher Hechsherim others already eat various Glatt kosher Hechsherim available in the Tri State Area.

On behalf of the new Lubavitch generation.
April 10, 2024 9:25 am

We see the hypocrisy and we don’t have time or patience for such foolishness. We keep Lubavitch shechita in the home so we can host our family. Otherwise it doesn’t really matter which Yid Shechted the animal. Life is expensive and complicated as it is. If it says glatt kosher then it’s good enough. We will buy the healthiest quality kosher product at the lowest price we can find. We focus on what really matters in life and are disillusioned by these petty differences. We focus on fulfilling the will of Hashem and don’t get distracted by such this type… Read more »

You could be MORE mehudar than the Alter Rebbe
April 10, 2024 10:52 am

To kasher the pipes, the water has to be 212 F.
So, if pouring the water on a hot rock before
it reaches the pipes will make it hotter than 212,
then aren’t we obligated to make that extra effort?

Reply to  You could be MORE mehudar than the Alter Rebbe
April 10, 2024 3:53 pm

Don;t be silly. When you pour the 212 water onto cold pipes, it cools a little bit. The hot rock balances out that the heat should remain at 212.
