Certifying Herring: Resting Assured about the Fish that’s Cured- Part I

In a thorough and engaging 2-part presentation, Rabbi Chaim Goldberg, a Rabbinic Coordinator with OU Kashruth with special expertise in fish, describes the certification of an old favorite: the herring. In Part I, Rabbi Goldberg describes the high-tech equipment used in catching herring–and the sharks that feed on them! Rabbi Goldberg also raises a fundamental question: how do I know I’m eating a kosher fish if it comes in a jar without scales and fins? You won’t want to miss this extravaganza of halacha and science. If you have questions or comments for Rabbi Goldberg please send them to: goldbergc@ou.org
