OU Kosher Announces Extended Hotline Hours in Preparation for Passover

26 Mar 2015

OU Kosher announces special OU Kosher Hotline hours to assist with Passover preparations. The following are the hotline’s extended hours:

Sunday, March 29:

10 a.m. – 12 p.m.

Monday, March 30 – Thursday, April 2:

9 a.m. – 6 p.m.

Friday, April 3:

10 a.m. – 1 p.m. (Erev Yom Tov)

The kosher hotline number is 212-613-8241.

“OU Kosher’s extended hotline hours are yet another service it provides to make it the world’s most recognized kosher symbol and also the top destination for kosher information year-round — particularly regarding the challenging preparations for Passover,” explained Rabbi Menachem Genack, CEO of OU Kosher.

“In previous years, we received many calls on erev Pesach alone, when the OU Kosher Hotline was open for three hours. Callers thanked us profusely for being open to help with their questions; and many last-minute calls came from rabbis, as were calls from people who had been told by their rabbi to contact the OU.  In fact, inquiries were received about products certified by other kosher organizations, as we were informed that the OU was the only agency open to help consumers during that time. We are proud to offer these extended hours once again.”
