|Nirbarter Tzaddik on the left|
The Nirbarter also gives hashgacha to individual caterers. The Nirbarter will not allow the caterer to use any products in the kitchen that he does not give an hashgacha on ...in other words all Lieber Products are "chazir treif" ....OU according to him is as if you were eating Hallal, and he does not allow any product that is under the hashgacha of Rabbi Steimetz or R' Weissmandel, amongst others.. There are 2 Tartikoff Hashgachois and he prohibits one of them, I don't remember which one!
I remember making a simcha once and asking the caterer if he uses Empire Chickens .....
He looked at me as if I just walked out of the Episcopal Church in New City ....
"Empire Chickens?" "they next thing you will probably want is Hebrew National!"
Now the reason I requested Empire Chickens is because it was after the notorious Monsey Chicken scandal .... and I knew that all the kosher food scandals happen only with the "heimishe hashgachois"
and I personally knew at least 15 Shoichtem that worked at Empire .... big erlicaha yidden!
So guess what ...... the Baal Hamachsher of Empire Chickens is none other than The "Holy" millionare ... R' Aron Teitelbaum, the Nirbarter Rav!
So my friends, those of you who have large families and are living on a budget, go shop at Costco and Shop rite and buy Empire Chickens .... no problem!
And if you have guests at your shabbos table and they should Chas Ve'Sholom, ask "nu! what chickens do you use?"
You can shock them and tell them ...."Shop-Rite Chickens"
arn't they tasty?
