Anyone know anything about Rabbi Nesanel Sommers (from Monsey I think)? A caterer I'm considering using said he gives their hashgocho

- IIRC, Chabad, and some other groups, have a boiled pasteurization chumra - i.e. 212 cheese - how does that labeled? חלב רותחת? :)
Look on the packaging of "natural & kosher" cheese

Yes. BH. Hopefully the dawn of a new era of shunning מחלוקת and politics in favor of advancing the Torah agenda of כלל ישראל.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

ר' אייזיק לנדא has been heavily involved in the Hashgacha for the past several years. At first on a regional basis for the north (as he was living in Tzfas), and IINM for the past 2 years full involvement in everything to do with the hashgacha.

Patron tequila has a KA kosher for Passover. Anyone know if that's a good hechsher?
