Kosher Investigator: How Rabbi Berel Levy Built the OK and Transformed the World of Kosher Supervision
Even as a young child, Berel Levy was determined and fearless in the pursuit of his goals. From the home of his uncle, &quot;the Malach,&quot; to the Lubavitch yeshivah in Otwock, Poland, he followed his dream of studying Torah, despite his parents&#39; disapproval and the looming clouds of World War II. In the halls of Torah Umesorah and the clandestine Jewish schools of the Soviet Union, he bolstered Jewish education and observance in the face of political opposition and an oppressive Communist regime. Perhaps most remarkably, as the head of the Organized Kashrus Laboratories, he forever changed the world of kosher supervision. Rabbi Levy&#39;s life story is told for the first time in these pages.
