ALERT: Unauthorized Shatnez Labels

shatnez-testers-logo1Alert regarding unauthorized shatnez labels. One alert signed by Rav Zachariah Gelley Shlita and Rabbi Yisroel Mantel Shlita of K’hal Adath Jeshurun in NYC (KAJ – Breuer’s) and another from the Lakewood Shatnez laboratory warning of an unauthorized shatnez label in the marketplace.

For questions, clarification or any information regarding shatnez, please contact Rabbi Eliyahu Neiman at

I debated if this should be publicized since the website focuses on Israel, not the international community vis-à-vis kashrus and shatnez.

Rabbi Eliyahu Neiman, our shatnez expert, wisely and correctly points out that many American yeshiva and kollel students receive or buy their clothing abroad, and therefore, the shatnez notifications from Europe and N. America are indeed applicable, even in Eretz Yisrael.
