not fighting, just pointing out an interesting article.    (a tad bid of sarcasm never hurt anybody)

"pre pesach" means it's only going to be geared towards pesach kashrus issues?

Eida Chardies is considered the best hechsher in Israel

Unless you are stringent to eat only Beis Yosef meat...

What are your thoughts about Eida beef. Is it Beis Yosef (BY) in the sense that they do not touch sirchos at all? I ask because a posek I know asked someone high in the organization around ten years ago and was told that the meat isn't BY. And another rov I know asked R' Shternbuch a couple years ago if the meat is BY, to which he responded "mistama". Doesn't sound too convincing.

Anyone have any other info? I am looking to hear other sides, as the people I'm around are convinced that it isn't BY.

To those that may respond that the Eida are machmir every shitto, so of course the meat must be BY, should be notified that it wasn't so long ago that the Eida's standards of bishul yisrael and grape juice (hagefen) did not fit the Beis Yosef's shitto.

Rumor has it the Eida doesnt care about BY. It does say on the stamp לאשכנזים. Anyhow, mods please move this conversation to where it belongs...

This is a thread about the quality of Kosher Food, not about the Kashrus of Eida Charedis. Why do you care? Let the Mods do their jobs..

Do us a favor and read the title of this post, or scroll up to the top of the page.

Thanks for the info about the Eida. Can anyone upload a pic of their hashgacha on meat?
