"Mr. Stanley Kolt has learned with me the main laws in Yoreh Deah in the areas of Meat and Milk, Mixtures, and Salting of Meat, and although we only learned some of the laws, I decided to give him my smichah (certification) to be called "Rav" in order to counsel people particularly in the area of health questions, on which he is an expert. His acts of kindness are well known: how he has saved many from imminent death and serious illness. May G-d help him to continue to give treatments, and continue to aid him to heal people and consult with him to benefit from his broad knowledge. Since he felt people would accept his advice more positively if he bore the title of "Rav", this certification has been granted on the basis of the laws we learned in Yoreh Deah, so that today, in this generation, he can be called a "Rav." He is not authorized to deliver halachic decisions, but rather to act as a consultant, as explained above. "
