Brooklyn, NY…The chances are that if you lived in the Flatbush area of Brooklyn, you ate kosher food that was certified by Rabbi Yisroel Pinchas Halevi Gornish. Many of the area’s kosher restaurants were certified by Rabbi Gornish. Local rabbis and the kosher world mourned his passing at the age of 79. Rabbi Gornish was the long-time rabbi of Khal Chizuk Hadas, a synagogue he founded 4 decades ago.
