In this extra special video, OU Kosher Senior Poskim, Rabbi Yisroel Belsky and Rabbi Hershel Schachter, provided practical guidance on issues spanning the breadth and depth of Yahadut, in another OU Kosher Webcast recorded live at OU Headquarters on Tuesday, December 13.

The webcast can be watched at http://ou.org/torah/article/let_my_people_know.

Questions received from around the country and Israel included: “Are there halachic issues with cruise ship departures on Erev Shabbat;” “How does a Shabbat observant Jew run an internet business?” “Can ‘implants’ of genes from non-kosher species render food forbidden?” “What is tzniut?” “Do weddings cost too much?” and “Can I invite an intermarried relative for a Shabbat meal?”

The webcast was moderated by OU Kosher’s Rabbi Eliyahu Safran, Vice President of Communications and Marketing.
