Rabbi Yaakov Lipschutz, Kashrus Authority, Passes Away at 87

Monsey…Rabbi Yaakov Lipschutz, considered by many as one of the world’s foremost authorities on Kashrus, passed away last week at the age of 87. A noted scholar, Rabbi Lipschutz served as the rabbi of Khal Bais Yosef for many years. He is the author of Kashruth, a brilliant compendium on all issues related to kashrus, published by ArtScroll/Mesorah Publications. He was one of the pioneers of kashrus in America, heading the OU Kashrus Division for many years and later leading National Kathruth, an organization he founded.
