comment Would silverware intended for one-time kosher use (e.g. airlines) need to be immersed in a mikva?
Not sure how the system works, who's buying the dishes from where. But that's very possibly the solution, they're just borrowing the brand-new dishes.

comment ישמע את האמת ממי שאמרה
I've always heard it as "kabel haemes mimi she'amra" (same idea, slightly different wording); would have to check something like R' Kafeh's translation.

comment Can meat ever be both “treifa” AND “neveila”?
To get two according to Reish Lakish, must it have died of a separate issue than its original, treifa-inducing injury, or even if it died of that injury?

comment Can meat ever be both “treifa” AND “neveila”?
@WAF, can we do a different tag than just "yoreh-deah"? Maybe "kashrut-theory-yoreh-deah"? I understand why this question should be tagged somewhat differently than a practical kashrut question like "is hechsher ABC recommended". Thoughts?

comment What is better - checking yourself - or buying pre checked?
Star-K describing their policy on pre-washed bags: "With a vegetable cleaning system, the means of creating a chazakah is to see if the system can effectively clean three batches of lettuce, or any other leafy vegetable, that you know was previously contaminated. After going through the wash system three samples are checked. If the samples are found to be free of infestation, a chazakah on the system has been achieved. It can now be assumed that the system can effectively clean the vegetables and no more checking is required!" star-k.org/kashrus/kk-vegetables-washed.htm

comment Is there anywhere that you can buy Kosher non Glatt meat?
That Trader Joe's meat has a Triangle-K, if I'm not mistaken. Check your local Orthodox rabbi whether that hechsher is considered to follow normative standards, other than glatt.
