Rav Westheim: Was nearly 20 years Dayan at the Manchester Beth Din. He was the director of the Kashrus department. He is currently regarded as one of the great European Rabbinical figures.

His mastering of the Laws of Kashrus enables him after thoroughly analysing the technical data, to propose the best solution in compliance with the requirements of a flawless standard of Kashrut. He is already well-known on the American continent especially in the sweets and candy industry. The industrial products carrying his signature actually profit from his international reputation even within the most demanding orthodox communities.
To give some examples of this competence, Rav Westheim as a director of the Kashrus of the Manchester Beth Din, after long years of work and research, achieved kosher accreditation for a number of products of the Kellogg's company. Other multinationals like Proctor & Gamble, Cargill, Heinz, Arcor, Camille Bloch, Elite and BP Chemicals among others have come to rely on his expertise and professional skill.

Rav Crémisi: is a Talmudical scholar and expert in the Rabbinical legislation. He resides in suburban Paris. He writes extensively on Jewish Law and answers the questions of the general public. He is very knowledgeable in the field of the ritual slaughter. His expertise contributed to the setup by KIR of the largest organization of Shechito in Europe. For this purpose, KIR works together with many orthodox communities e.g. the one of the Chief Rabbi of France, Rabbi Joseph Sitruk, and Rav Mordechai Gross.
