You mean Moshe and Aharon...

...WEREN'T lugging microscopes around with them for 40 years along with those four sets of dishes?

Jerusalem - Rav Amar: Strawberries Kosher And May Be Eaten
Voz iz Neias reprint
By Ezra Reichman | Arutz-7

Jerusalem - During a visit to a Hesder Yeshiva in the Yesha town of Karnei Shomron, Chief Rabbi Shlomo Amar gave a shiur on the permissibility of eating strawberries.

He claimed that the recent psak issued by chareidi rabbis against eating strawberries because of the inevitability of their being infested by insects, is not correct because, "The Torah only forbad eating bugs and crawling insects which are visible to the eyes. It didn't forbid eating insects which can only be seen by a microscope."

Rav Amar ruled that it is sufficient to soak the strawberries in water, rinse them off and then remove the top leafy part to eat them...

Wow, I'm glad somebody was here to tell me this, because my ancestors never would have thought of....oh, wait. Never mind, they already did.
