Getzel Rubashkin says Rabbi Morris Allen does not keep kosher.
I know this to be untrue.
Rabbi Allen keeps kosher and so does…
…a very high percentage of his congregants.
Let's examine Getzel's remarks in more detail.
I don't mean this as a personal attack, but I understand that the proponents of HT don't keep "technical" kosher themselves and would hardly call for pots to be kashered.
And then clarified under pressure:
"I'm sorry for offending, … I was referring specifically to Rabbi Allen. Proponents was the wrong word to use. I was trying to avoid naming anyone in particular. I apologize for my poor choice of words which implied that all people who support HT do not keep Kosher. I do not believe that to be the case at all."
In other words, first Getzel smeared all people involved with Hechsher Tzedek and then, when confronted by some of those people, limited his smear to Rabbi Allen, its founder.
A large percentage of Agriprocessors' pre-raid customers were Conservative Jews.
I find it hard to believe these Jews will rush out to embrace the "new" Agriprocessors when the "new" Agriprocessors lies about their leaders.
