How do you know my views ? I dont take the moral high ground as easy as it is for many... who will drag their Rav through the mud and disgrace a mikdash meat by talking in shull ... and during kadish and that is their problem but I mean at least I dont pretend to be holy.

I ask a question of Kashrut to someone competent in line with my hashkafa or get a 2nd opinion on logistics and follow it.

I ate trayf as a teenager, I dont need justification. I will soak veggies in water with salt, cut off tips where instructed etc..

But I really see tolaim as a hashkafic thing along with those who only eat a certain shechita or dont trim their beard.. Why accept crazy chumros ?

Different folks, different strokes... yet some are pressured in to buying over priced frozen garbage thats a shod af yidisher gelt
I don't see how not talking in shul justifies eating tolaim or reading materials that have a hint of kefira to them.

The first is stupid, the 2nd is subjective the 3rd is debatable.

Bet you cant find me a guy that talks in shull as a matter of principle... well, maybe.. but he'd be one deprived soul...

God forbid hillel hazaken's korech steak sandwich had lettuce!! i'd assume he had mayo and a tomato too? dammit cartman, i'm adding a klp pickle to my korech this year!

Before you add a klp pickle to your Korech - which is highly problematic - we don't even put salt on Matzoh eaten during the Seder (except during שולחן עורך), you might emulate Hillel's כורך (aka the Original Shawarma Laffa) by using soft (Yemeni style) Matzohs. Up until about 200-250 years ago all Matzohs were more similar to Pita than to the crackers we eat today. Since you seem interested in the development of Rabbinic Judaism, the evolution of Matzohs to what we eat today (along with avoiding געבראקס - which is directly related to the cracker style Matzohs) is an integral part of that, though it is from a later date than what you were inquiring about in a different thread.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I dont believe in kitniyot but I dont really care to go cook it or go out of my way to eat it.. I did go to the mesorah dinner! Although the food was lame and I was sick for a week lol

Why are mesorah's like eating elk or eating stuff our ancestress ate not important but chumros from europe make people crazy.

I have had the yeminite pitot in israel but dont have access in miami

So Seasons no longer sells fresh raspberries, and their cauliflower has an "unchecked" sticker on it (should better say "infested"?).

But in the freezer they have these, that have a " K" for kosher. - are they really kosher? Says who?


The Dole strawberry's actually have an OU.

You are opening back up a can of worms?! (Pun intended...)

I wonder if these stores like GG and seasons take all this flak into consideration when opening up.

It's like Donald Trump. More publicity, even negative = better/more business...

If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

the op likes to scream and only find out the facts afterwards. cf: good dentist thread
I asked a legitamate question about the kosher status of frozen raspberries. Which A3 was gracious enough to answer.

As a dentist, you still havent defended the practice of "selling" a mandatory professional cleaning to your clients every six months.
Please respond in the thread.

I don't have to "sell" or prove anything.

My issue isn't with you asking questions, it's with your assumption that "they" must be wrong.

Is this only the one's in Lakewood?
It's the brands specified.

They specifically also mentioned that they have not looked at any other brands, so noone should infer that they are ok.
