Identifying Kosher Birds: Books and Laws of Beaks and Claws – Part II
What if a new bird came along - could we determine if it was kosher? How would we do it? Join Rabbi Chaim Loike, a Rabbinic Coordinator with OU Kashruth who has special expertise in the kashrus of birds, for a look at the interplay of halacha and history. What happened long ago when two new birds were introduced into Europe: did Jews eat them? Why or why not? Don’t miss this look back in time and deeper into Torah.
If you want more information about identifying kosher birds, make sure to get “Kosher Birds: Who Are They?,” a DVD featuring Rabbi Loike - and live birds! This is one of four educational DVD’s released by the Orthodox Union. The series also includes presentations about meat and fish, and a youth primer on kosher certification. For details on procuring the DVD’s, contact Rabbi Eliyahu Safran at SafranE@ou.org.
