The Great Gaon Rabbi Jonathan Eibeschutz O.B.M. Author of Keresi Ufleisy Writes that most all menakkerim are unlearned, and therefore, cannot be relied upon.

 In these times, we must be more stringent, not relying on the assumed piety of the menakker. Now, there are many stringent rulings and the work is extremely difficult. Most of the Practitioners are unlearned.. .and we may not rely on the nikkur of anyone unless he is an expert and a long-standing Gd-fearing man...

From the time I was able to understand, I learned the laws of nikkur to be well versed in them and in their names. I did not rely on the menakker, but ate only what I cleansed myself, and ate only from the toil of my hands.

The moral of the story is: If a holy and learned man like R. Yonason whose precious time was totally dedicated to heavenly pursuits, toiled with his own two hands to clean out the meat, it surely must be a very serious matter.

Sefer Divrei Moshe, on Torah, Parshas Kedoshim. From the deeds of the Gaon R. Yonason everyone can understand the rabbinical axiom: one who benefits from the toil of his hands is greater than one who fears Heaven... Namely one who works with his two hands is greater than one who fears Heaven if that accomplishment càmes to him easily, without toil.

 

 

Warning of Chofetz Chaim O.B.M.

How much will an individual regret, when with a mere admonition, he could have extricated himself from all these punishments. Let him not be misled by the fact that others will share the punishment with him considering that he is not the only one in the city to have transgressed thereby finding false comfort.

As an analogy: In the event a person is a co-signer on a note encumbering a debt of millions of dollars, regardless the number of additional co-signers, when the debt becomes due, even if required to reimburse only a small fraction thereof, it could amount to a sizable sum, which will be quite painfull to pay. Similarly, since today the ingestion and partaking of prohibited foods has become unfortunately widespread when the time for reckoning arrives, it will amount to many thousands of (Ksaytim) olive- sized pieces of prohibited foods.

Consequently, those capable of arousing the populace in their vicinity to observe kashrus strictly and thereby prevent untold thousands of Jews who were lax from eating non-kosher, will surely be considered the most guilty. Our sages admonish:

Tana Dvei Eliyahu: Anyone able to protest and refrains to do so; Anyone able to elicit repentance and does not do so, all blood spilled will be credited to his negligence and held against him...

 

Even if the question would be of a doubtful case of Chelev [forbidden fats] , it would still be highly advisable and intelligent to abstain from eating such meat, for in the Torah we find the penalty of Karet for eating prohibited foods in only four cases: 1) Eating Chametz on Pesach. 2) Eating on Yom Kippur. 3) Eating Chelev, and 4) Eating blood. In the case of Chametz on Pesach and eating on Yom Kippur, every simple Jew will quake in the fear of infracting these prohibitions, even if there is only a slight chance, if there is a rumor that a food contains Chametz and so it is with Yom Kippur. Why should the matter of Chelev be looked upon or felt to be of any lesser degree than the other 3 cases mentioned?

It is indeed astonishing that everyone avoids matzah if there is the least doubt that it may contain Chametz, even if it is kosher according to the Shulchan Aruch, whereas Chelev, which is just as severe as Chametz, both of them being punishable by Karet and which pertains all year round, not only on Pesach - when he hears any kind of excuse, he is happy that he has an alibi to eat as much meat as his heart desires.

Proclamations Issued Concerning the

Details of Nikkur and its Pitfalls!

In the house of Israel I have seen confusion. The generations have become spiritually impoverished and the wisdom of the hearts has become lessened, G-d-fearing men are despised. The truth has become curtailed and strong-armed men raise their heads. The profession of nikkur - even that of the front-quarters alone - my eyes have witnessed various pitfalls, each one different than the next, and I decided that this did not present itself before me in vain, but to arouse the hearts of the G-d-fearing with a hue and cry, Awake, you sleepers, from your sleep and you slumberers from your slumber, for the time has come to accomplish for G-d and His Torah, and for the existence of the future generations. If you are silent at this time, who knows what tomorrow will bring, and who ascended to Heaven and heard the heavenly pronouncements concerning the gravity of the pitfall that accrues from the neglect of nikkur of chelev.

Anyone who gives this matter any thought, concerning what even inadvertent eating of chelev amounts to, will feel his heart being rent asunder, and he will cry and cause others to cry with him with tumultuous shouts. How do we sit back with folded hands when the deeds of Satan have succeeded so well to create a breach in the sanctity of the Jewish people, who are separated from the nations via their abstention from their food and drink.

We learn from the halachah, come as well as from the history books, that since the time of the great Gaon Rabbi Yonason Eibeshutz the pitfall of nikkur chelev has not left us in any generation, sometimes it is more pronounced and sometimes less. How can we expect our generation to be exempt from this malady? Are we better than the previous generations. In this period of history in which so many breaches in all fields of Judaism have transpired, surely the pitfall of chelev, which also occurred in earlier generations has also come about. Anyone who debates the issue does so because of lack of concentration and sensitivity to the situation. It is a stubborn denial of validity. Concerning such people, the prophet says: Woe to those who make light into darkness and darkness into light. ((Lekach Toy, Maharam Weinfeld on Parshas Shemini.

 

Regarding Ground meat, Sausages, Salamis, Pastramis

One who eats meat, probably eats the derivative products (e.g. sausages, salami, pastrami, etc) It is axiomatic that any product consisting of. a compendium and combination of ingredients and where the individual component ingredients are not inspected in their pure state, requires more stringent kashrus review, since the mixture may contain ingredients which are deemed kosher only in instances of emergency and extenuating circumstances. Were the eater aware of this, the inclusion of those particular ingredients, he would positively abstain therefrom and many times even become disgusted by it.

These by-products include animal fats; the probability of chelev inclusion is much more pdssible (bordering on near certainty) since it is not visible in the end product. Moreoever, it includes all sorts of inferior meat cuts and fats.. ingredients to color it red...to make it appear fresh. See response Minchas Yitzchak starting that sausages are colored with small black African flies, which are dried and pulverized. The powder is added to the sausages while it is being cooked. Reliable and noteworthy physicians have criticized the inclusion of this ingredient that is very harmful to the stomach and blood system, hence detrimental to well-being. Who needs it?

 

Jacob Landa

Tammuz 5739

Rabbi and Head of the Rabbinical Court

of Bnai Brak Eretz Israel

The Topic: Nikkur of the inside

As is known, here in the Holy Land, we perform nikkur and Shpondres. This depends however what is considered the inner part If We include in the front part what is behind the diaphragm therein lies biblically Prohibited chelev What the Ramo states in Shulchan Aruch ch. 64, (that there is no chelev) refers only to the inner part before the diaphragm where the lungs lie. If however, we include with the front part, some of the meat of the diaphragm, Ramos ruling does not apply, because there We indeed find real chelev

Likewise Darchei TeShuvah quotes a booklet by Sema, that above the diaphragm there is no chelev but below it begins the chelev of the kidneys and other types of chelev

Jacob Landa, Rabbi of Bnei Brak Israel

 

Everyone knows how much the Chafetz Chaim o.b.m. warned our brethren in his time, when they were forced to wander to various places because of the terrible decrees of that period. He warned them that if they have, G-d forbid, no choice but either to eat pork or to eat animals that died without being properly slaughtered, they should, G-d forbid, not eat the latter which is meat from which the Chelev [forbidden fats] was not removed, but rather eat pork whose prohibition is merely a negative commandment, rather than, G-d forbid, stumble upon the prohibition of Chelev, which is punishable by Karet.

Yet, in our times, the situation has reached such an alarming low that without any decree by the government or any other coercion, they feed our brethren meat from which the Chelev is either not removed at all or at best not properly removed and in their innocence, many innocent G-d-fearing people are trapped in a terrible snare, whose results are so far-reaching, that it is utterly unbelievable even catastrophic in many instances testifying to the terrible occurrences of devastation we daily witness. Heaven have mercy.
