Papaya grows on a tree!!
Papaya grows on a tree!!So it's a definite Orlah issue ass all commercially grown papaya in the world are from trees less than 36 months.Many poiskim have concluded that there are 7 critereas that define a "tree" (see Divrei Malkiel) therefore they detirmined it's hoadamah.
Not so simple, my friend.Even if papaya were ha'oetz, it would be muttar if grown in chutz l'Aretz, due to the safek as to whether it is truly from the first three years.This is because the three years are not based on calendar years, but on the hebrew calendar, where "a year" could have elapsed even after a few weeks, depending on when it was planted.Therefore, some papayas are halachically four years old.
Srry, there is no safek at all, it's a vadai, based on halachic facts by the growers. They are 24-30 months old.

Nuts Galore! is a division of Golden Fluff under my nephew Gavriel, the Lakewood Satmar dayan and the OU.You attacked them a year ago almost to the day that they are selling infested dried figs & raisins. Gavriel farentfered the raisins chotsh that he has a "special source".Did they drop those items?
Pretty slim pickings. What are we supposed to do while shopping at the 95% of stores around the country that don't carry a Lakewood brand? That's really all you can come up with? Shvach!
I know a certain Vaad Harabbonim that could use a name change. Is Nuts Galore trademarked? Ess passt when so many of this certain Vaad are pro-substandard kashrus, pro-gay, Maskilishe, two-faced yeshivishe maniac type and anti-Rav Elyashev.
There's a place in Boro Park that all they have on them is Star K. They have the last laugh because you would think otherwise but all kinds of fresser chassidim still buy there.
Well, I've never been around when they shrink wrap the platters but I would surmise based on my vast knowledge that they are probably eliminating any bugs by giving a little flick with the finger. Most of my expertise comes from fressing the finished product myself that there was no discernible protein in the dried fruits. I gulped them down very fast but that shouldn't make a difference as there is a sfek sfaika in my estimation that any insect was probably deprived of oxygen in the shrink wrap and may have fallen apart.R' Yudel should step up to the plate and be forthcoming about who checked the platters to supposedly find bugs and what kind of methods they used.
KAJ certifies a line called Ma Nishtana based in Brooklyn. Any good?
Verschleiser is modern orthodox. He davens by Rabbi Shmidman at Orach Chaim on the Upper East Side and is on the board of Ramaz. His homes on 5th Ave and in the Aspen ski resort, allegedly bought with stolen money, are worth a collective $32.5 million. After getting kicked out of Bear Stearns, he was able to get a job at Goldman thanks to his wife's cousin Steve Mnuchin who is an executive there.http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/manhattan/sachs_man_bat_mitzvah_bEVAB0useRLrwe2HaIJHtLIt’s your toxic mortgages at work.Goldman Sachs investment banker Jeffrey Verschleiser, accused of illicitly profiting from bad mortgages that led to the 2008 meltdown, is spending $1 million to take over a swanky Aspen, CO, hotel for his Upper East Side daughter’s bat mitzvah, sources said.Verschleiser is taking over the luxury Hotel Jerome for the entire weekend, and perks for the guests reportedly include autographs from pro skiers.“It is a little tone deaf, and it’s a really disgusting display of ill-gotten gains,” one angry Aspen resident said.http://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2011/01/e-mails-suggest-bear-stearns-cheated-clients-out-of-billions/70128/That lawsuit JP Morgan really really didn’t want you to read has just been unsealed & now we see why they used their big bank status to muscle the courts & keep it out of the public eye. The suit shows Bear executives, who all made millions & got great jobs at other banks when Bear failed, out right stole from their own investors & clients. What‘s worse is JP Morgan covered it up for the last 3 years.Mike Nierenberg & Jeff Verschleiser would sell mortgage securities to institutional investors they knew were deafulting in the first few months. Then instead of fixing the bonds during the first 90 days & giving the investors the cash they contractually were owed to make up for the bad loans, they just kept the money for themselves. Last time I looked, that’s a criminal fraud offense & clear violations of securities laws.Jeff Verschleiser who ran the other half of the Bear trading group, was making sure the bank was also shorting the stocks of the companies they sold products to that were designed to fail. And then bragged in 2007 to his risk committee, run by guys like Ace Greenberg & Warren Specter, that he’d just made double-digit millions off those shorts.A few months after JP Morgan took over a near bankrupt Bear Stearns, Verschleiser landed in the mortgage department of none other than Goldman Sachs. According to the WSJ he even helped his new peers prepare for congressional testimony when it was their turn to defend selling products they thought were dreck & designed to lose money.I’m not sure how JP Morgan will let this case go to trial & not sign a big fat check over to the institutional investors who’ve been suing them for years. Verschleiser cut a mile-wide swath of losses through the American economy, helped destroy 2 venerable firms in Bear & Ambac, and bilked the taxpayer for untold millions more. He is also named in a lawsuit filed by the Federal Housing Finance Agency for allegedly speeding bad loans onto securitization before they defaulted.
R' Yudel, there is a problem with the scale insect on candied orange peels from Israel under non-heimish hashgochos. Some cakes are also made with orange peel and it's hard to know if the peels are grated finely enough to break up berya.What about orange peels from other countries of origin?
"Verschleiser is taking over the luxury Hotel Jerome for the entire weekend, and perks for the guests reportedly include autographs from pro skiers"Why wasn't I invited?

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4175443,00.htmlBnei Brak's Rabbi Moshe Yehuda Leib Landa has warned that turning on faucets in some multi-story apartment buildings leads to the desecration of Shabbat.The rabbi issued a halachic ruling explaining that the using the tap directly turns on an electrical water pumping system – an offense which, according to the Torah, can be punished by stoning.Rabbi Landa was asked to address the issue by his city's residents. After realizing that it concerned many Jews all over the world who live in multi-story buildings, he decided to delve into it.For several weeks he consulted professionals in order to understand the mechanism leading the water from the pool to the apartments, and looked into different alternatives presented to him.After concluding his inquiry, Landa ruled that "any person with technical knowledge can easily understand that a pump operated upon the opening or closing of the faucet means is basically being turned on on Shabbat."According to the rabbi, the long-term solution is to install a high water reservoir enabling natural rather than electrical pumping. In the meantime, however, "there is no other choice but to ensure that the pump is turned throughout Shabbat and Jewish holidays."This would require the installment of a special faucet which moves unused water back to the underground pool.At the end of his letter, Rabbi Landa calls on the residents to accept the financial expenses involved in the solution and the noise expected to disrupt the day of rest until a permanent solution is found. "On the contrary, hearing the sound of the pump will bring you some Shabbat entertainment and the joy of a mitzvah," he wrote.Following the halachic complication, the rabbi's aides are calling on building contractors to consult rabbinical authorities before installing such pumps in the city's apartment buildings in order to prevent Shabbat desecration in advance.They explained that the wider public was unaware of the issue and that contractors were therefore causing residents to commit acts banned by the Torah.
