For Heaven’s Sake LUSOHITS – let us stick our heads in the sand

​I post the conversation [below] to illustrate that even some Gd-fearing, intelligent, well-educated and well-meaning people, prefer to put their head in the sand rather than possibly discover their illegitimate and sinful prejudices.

I actually sought permission to publish and disclose their identity [part of my strategy to encourage them to recognise that their responses are silly and they are in fact ashamed of them] but they very quickly and emphatically refused to be publicly identified with such weird, ineffective and evasive responses, which are a transparent revelation of their flawed thinking.

Their’s is a prejudice founded upon a tribal allegiance to a brand within Judaism which unfortunately demands, in the name of Gd, submission of one’s responsibility to Gd, His commandments and one’s fellow Jew.

Well, I hope you may wish to discover a little more about Ben PeKuAh and also about what I do for Kashrus and why I do it

Rabbi Rabi,
I think you are a good guy and that you have good intentions but I am not alone in thinking that your hechsher leaves something to be desired. Call me a hardliner, but I will never forget taking a friend to Babel restaurant some years ago and being offered milk in my coffee, even though it was a fleishig restaurant. [Babel had a dedicated dairy kitchen for serving dairy coffee during morning hours at which time meat was not served – notwithstanding Reb Moshe famously permitting restaurants to offer dairy coffee after a meat meal] It kind of eroded my trust. So I’m not sure what there is to discuss.

I wish you well and all the best, Gut Moed and a Gut gebenched Yohr.

S,
I don’t call you anything but someone who is looking for the right path.

If you are “not sure what there is to discuss” then you may not be surprised that there is much to discover through discussion, unless you really mean there is nothing to discuss – in which case it may mean that you are uncomfortable with what you may discover through discussion.

And I doubt that you mean that a one time error is enough to permanently erode your trust, because which Kashrus organisation has not made many errors?

So what do you have to lose?

Best,
Rabbi Meir G. Rabi

Yes I would object. Please do not post private communication. Thank you for asking. I don’t think it will add anything to whatever debate is taking place.

Best regards

I really can’t understand your objection, although I will honour your preference.

You see i am positive that it would contribute very important and useful insights into the nature of those who protest my accomplishments and ambitions. And it’s not as though there is any rancour or undignified posture in our exchange.
