comment What's up with this strange new hechsher?
I'm wondering if I'm the only one who finds this a bit offputting. I mean, I know that some hechshers are questionable, but at least then it usually comes down to one rabbi representing the hechsher (OU being the major exception). With this label, though, any moron with a printer can slap a label on some food. In today's world, where there are almost countless possibilities for kosher food with a reliable hechsher, I just don't see the value of this (other than someone trying to sell their own baked goods - and let's be honest, the majority of those people's friends know if it's kosher or not)

I can't imagine who would want to drink a kosher diet coke with bacon flavor! That just seems unseemly disgusting, hechsher or no.

comment Are there any restrictions about a chazzan if there are questions about his orthodoxy?
Thanks for your answer. The problem is that there are quite a few people who are 'questionable', and it's not like you can say definitively they aren't kosher or shabbos observant. But I'll be more worried about who is called up to daven during Rosh Hashanna or Yom Kippur.

You can also try using Bulgur en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bulgur, which is made up of wheat; alternatively, some Kasha is also made of wheat.
