OU Welcomes Back Rav Belsky Following Long Illness

June 22, 2012

With deep gratitude to Hashem, the Orthodox Union Kashrut Department welcomed back its halachic Posek, Rav Yisroel Belsky, who returned to OU headquarters for the first time following a long hospitalization and recuperation for his serious and at times life-threatening illness.


During Rav Belsky’s entire ordeal, OU staff was called upon to recite tehillim for his recovery.
At the reception in Rav Belsky’s honor, Rabbi Menachem Genack, CEO of OU Kosher, and Dr. Simcha Katz, President of the Orthodox Union, delivered heartfelt messages of thanksgiving and happiness for Rav Belsky’s recovery. Rav Belsky then spoke to the large gathering of kashrut rabbanim who were present, following which he received the first piece of his welcome back cake.
