The program will take place at www.ou.org/webcast_kosher/.
In announcing the upcoming webcast, Rabbi Eliyahu Safran, OU Kosher's Vice President of Communications and Marketing, noted the many requests coming from previous listeners to OU Kosher's webcasts "to have Rabbis Belsky and Schachter respond and comment on the many recurring questions and issues in all areas of halachic concern and practice affecting both the individual and community.”
Topics that have already been suggested by listeners include: priorities in charitable giving; the need to better prioritize charitable contributions during economic depression; how to best educate with so many contemporary distractions; and conflicts between home and school.
The webcast is part of OU Kosher's continuing and ever growing educational outreach to the community, which includes:
• "OU Kosher Coming to Schools and Communities" program;
• The highly informative and entertaining Kosher Tidbits postings, now numbering more than 175 on OU Radio. Recently posted Kosher Tidbits include: “The Baffling Enigma of the Bowfin Egg” featuring Rabbi Eli Gersten; “Kosher Wine: I’ll Drink to That!” with Rabbi Nachum Rabinowitz; and “Cheese Without Ease: A Kashrut Challenge Solved,” presented by Rabbi Avrohom Gordimer.
The link for Kosher Tidbits is: www.ouradio.org/ouradio/channel/C301.
• OU Kosher educational DVDs for home, schools, classrooms, synagogues and youth groups; the most recently released DVD, the sixth in the series is: "What's Wrong With This Chicken?”
