The Orthodox Union West Coast Region invites Los Angeles-area residents to renew a long-time favorite aspect of Passover preparations: practical workshops given among the isles of Ralphs Markets as tours of Kosher for Passover products. The tours will take place at various Ralphs locations across the area between Monday, March 19-Wedneseday, March 28. Questions are welcome for the latest information on this year’s Passover preparations; refreshments and raffles are included in the tours.

Rabbi Alan Kalinsky, Director of the OU West Coast Region, and Rabbi Reuven Nathanson, OU Kosher West Coast Region Senior Rabbinical Field Representative and Director, will led the tours.

Passover is observed Friday night, April 6 through Saturday night, April 14.

Rabbi Kalinsky noted, “We have been providing the annual Kosher for Passover Supermarket Tours for more than 20 years. Our friends at the Ralphs Market organization are very consumer-oriented and have been doing a phenomenal job of providing for the kosher consumer. Surveys have shown that Ralphs collected 40 percent of the Southern California Kosher Food Dollar, making it the number one choice among our Jewish clientele.”
