MIRRER ROSH HAYESHIVA HARAV NOSON TZVI FINKEL VISITS OU KASHRUS AS PART OF ASK OU OUTREACH PROGRAM

As part of the Harry H. Beren ASK OU Outreach Program, OU Kashrus has not only reached out to communities, yeshivos, kollelim and semicha programs, but has also invited prominent Roshei haYeshiva and Rabbonim to address the kashrus staff at the OU, most recently Mirrer Rosh HaYeshiva HaRav Noson Tzvi Finkel, Shlita, who visited Thursday.

According to Rabbi Yosef Grossman, Senior Educational Rabbinic Coordinator of OU Kashrus, “In forging these links between the OU and the Yeshiva world, Rav Finkel joins Rav Shmuel Kaminetsky, Rav Osher Weiss, Rav Psachya Fried and Rav Binyomin Cohn who have all visited the OU and delivered shiurim and divrei hisorerus or spoken to the OU rabbonim at OU Kashrus Conferences as part of ASK OU Outreach.”

Rav Finkel was joined by Rav Binyomin Carlebach from Mir Yerusholayim. They both spoke briefly to the OU Kashrus rabbonim as did Rav Yisroel Belsky, OU halachic posek, and Rabbi Menachem Genack, CEO of OU Kashrus. “The gathering was an inspiration for all who attended,” Rabbi Grossman said.

Speaking in English, Rav Finkel said he was overwhelmed coming into the room and meeting all the rabbis who toil on behalf of the Jewish people to guarantee that they are being supplied with kosher food, Rabbi Grossman said.
