Certification for shechitah is known as a "kabalah", not (directly) related to "Jewish mysticism."

I recall seeing a sign advertising lessons that would culminate in an exam/certification from either Rabbi Yisroel Belsky in Brooklyn (who is on OU Kosher's policy panel), or a name in Lakewood I'm afraid I didn't recognize. At least that's one name for you ...

  • AFAIK Rabbi Belsky doesn't give people kabalah...but perhaps I don't know that far :P – Shokhet Jul 29 '15 at 20:55
  • So any other ideas?? – user9841 Jul 29 '15 at 21:23

Rabbi Avidan Elkin of Hackensack, NJ
