Much has been discussed of late regarding the Braekel chicken, which has rabbonim divided regarding its kashrus.

On Thursday, 2 Elul, HaGaon HaRav Moshe Yehuda Leib Landau, Mora D’asra of Bnei Brak, met with Eida Chareidis Ravaad HaGaon HaRav Moshe Sternbuch to discuss the kashrus of the Braekel. The meeting was held in Rabbi Sternbuch’s apartment that was built for him on the Lod yeshiva complex, permitting the meeting after the shiur opening the Elul zman.

Both rabbonim are in agreement, that there is no mesora and the bird is prohibited. Rav Landau has already published his opinion, stating without a doubt we may not eat this particular bird.
