  1. who is this guy imposing his chumros on everyone?
    another question i am on a do not call list but i get daily calls for tzedakah organizations how do i report them?

  2. the guy is a known troublemaker.
    he picks fights with raboniom all day long.
    he wants to the mayor, rosh yeshiva, mohel, hatzolah man, chevra kadisha, mashgiach, plumber, bus driver, kugel fresser, chulent macher, hocker, bocker, knocker, flecher, and most of all hes full of SHEKER.

    please post this comment. its important for people to know that you should never ever be soimech on anything this unterveltnick says or does.

    shabbaaaat shaaallllom

  3. I don’t understand what kind of business an individual has leaving messages to disregard all hechsherim!! I think I’m gonna start leaving messages too. I just gotta start thinking of some ridiculous mesage to leave.

  4. This guy is such a fake fony and fraud. Although he happens to be pretty smart and knows a lot of stuff, ever notice how he non-stop bashes KCL and many other establishments by name, but will never mention the big caterer that has many issues, because he happens to be his very good and close friend

  5. this guy unfortunatly knowledgable, however his knowledge is limited to where they will let him see. When an establishment or organization disregards his requests he goes on the attack and hopes he is right.
    He thinks he smarter then previous gedolim who also knew the issues and paskened NOT like him.
