By the grace of G-d

Behold the KosherLamp one more sign of the days of Moshiach:
The Rebbe King Moshiach Shlit"a (May He live forever and ever!)explains that G-d Almighty is now making it easy for us to observe the Torah. I think the KosherLamp is another example of this phenomenon it allows us to learn more Torah on Shabbos it makes it easier for Baalei Teshuvah to start keeping Shabbos it increases the peace our families.I have recently started using one myself and I can wholeheartedly recomend it to you.
With respect and blessing!

Toronto, Canada April 26, 2004-―THE KOSHERLAMP STORY

It began when Rebbetzen Chana, an avid reader, asked her husband Rabbi Shmuel Veffer if he could improvise a light so she could read in the bedroom on the Sabbath and then turn the light ‘off' without affecting the electricty. Soon after, Reb Shmuel and his son came home from the local hardware store with a hodgepodge of parts, and by the end of the day had put together a clunky working model. The following Sabbath all of their children and their friends wanted one.

Neighbor Rob Sheinbein said, "With a lamp like this I'll be able to find things in the baby's dresser drawer Shabbos night and then turn "off" the light so it doesn't disturb him." Another friend was excited about sending the children to read in bed Friday night instead of falling asleep on the couch.

Reb Shmuel realized he had come up with something big.

"We all come up with great ideas, but often don't know how to turn them into reality," says Rabbi Veffer. "As hashgacha (Providence) would have it my congregant Moshe Orzech is in the lighting business."

Says Orzech, "After seeing the working model I immediately understood the potential. A lamp you can turn ‘on' and ‘off' on Shabbos? The possibilities were endless!"

After a handshake their ‘KosherLamp' business was born.

"Aside from the business aspect, I was really excited by the prospect of working on a project with my Rabbi to help the Jewish community," says Orzech.

Orzech set off to China to build the prototype while Reb Shmuel continued to refine the KosherLamp design and develop the website -- .


The first technological innovation is the double FADESHADE™ system. There are two independent shades, each with its own "window." The inner shade can be rotated without moving the lamp. When the "windows" are aligned, the light comes out. When they are not aligned, the light is blocked and stays inside the lamp.

The second innovation vents the heat generated by the relatively cool compact fluorescent lamp without letting any light escape when the lamp is in the closed "off" position.


KOSHERLAMP™ has been approved for Sabbath use by leading rabbinical authorities including Rav Yosef Sholom Eliashiv (shlita) of Jerusalem, Rav Shlomo Miller (shlita) of Toronto and Rav Dovid Cohen (shlita) of New York.
