Rabbi Gershon Bess Forbids Consumption Of Most Fish

I wonder if the RCC will force all their restaurants to stop selling fish?

An Orthodox rabbi tells me about Rabbi Bess and the RCC: “These people don’t know what they are talking about when they prohibit these things. The fish are mutar (permitted).”


The 5TJT has just received word that this past Friday, Rav Elyashiv, Rav Vosner, and Rav Karelitz have all signed upon a Kol Koreh declaring the Anisakis worm to be completely forbidden even when it was found in the flesh of fish.

The three Rabbinic leaders signed the letter after it was proven to them beyond any doubt that the overwhelming majority of the Anisakis worms enter the flesh of the fish through the viscera of the fish itself.

The Rabbis rejected the alternative reading of the Shulchan Aruch Chapter 84 that was promulgated by a number of Rabbis in America and England. In that reading, the author of the Shulchan Aruch categorically states that all worms found in the flesh are permitted to be consumed
