Rav Dovid Lifshitz didn't personally eat turkey because of iffyness of
saying it fits the requirement for a kosher species of bird to be backed
by a mesorah. Not lekhakhah, but as a personal chumerah.
And yet R Dovid celebrated Thanksgiving. (Which was a more common
sentiment in the refugee generation.) But he did so with a goose dinner.
