Who are these personalities?
Rabbi Osher Westheim Ztl:
Was nearly 20 years Dayan at the Manchester Beth Din before he founded
the BIR Badatz Igud Rabbonim with the blessing of his mechutan Rav Shmuel Wosner Ztl.
During his life he was regarded as one of the greatest European Rabbinical figures
and was a world renowned Kashrus expert and Rav Hamachshir. He was extremely
well respected throughout the Food Industry and Kashrus world.
His mastering of the Laws of Kashrus enabled him after thoroughly analysing
the technical data, to propose the best solution in compliance with the
requirements of a flawless standard of Kashrut. He was well-known on the
American & European continents especially in the sweets and candy industry as
well as Kosher certification of raw materials. The industrial products carrying his
Kosher logo 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.
