OU Kosher Presents Pre-Pesach Program in Boro Park, March 30

21 Mar 2014

With Passover approaching, OU Kosher announces OU Kashrus Shiurim return to Boro Park to be held Sunday, March 30 at Agudas Yisroel Zichron Moshe, 1561 50th Street. The program begins at 7:30 p.m. and there is free admission. The event is for men only.

This will be one of three pre-Pesach programs arranged for the New York Metropolitan area across the spectrum of Torah observance; – in Boro Park, for a chasidish audience; in Riverdale for a modern Orthodox audience and in Lakewood, NJ for a yeshivish audience.  “The theme is servicing a broad spectrum of the community through the kashrut educational programs of OU Kosher,” explained Rabbi Yosef Grossman, Senior Educational Rabbinic Coordinator of OU Kosher, and coordinator of each of the programs. Each of these ASK OU Outreach programs is sponsored by the Harry H. Beren Foundation of New Jersey.

Rabbi Moshe Elefant, Chief Operating Officer and Executive Rabbinic Coordinator of OU Kosher, will speak on “Halachic Issues of Foods, Ingredients and Medications for Pesach.” At 8:15, Rabbi Avrohom Juravel, Director of Technical Services/Ingredients and Food Technology of OU Kosher, will present “Products You Would Never Imagine Could Contain Chametz!”  A question and answer period will follow each session. Rabbi Grossman will serve as host and moderator.

Priority will be given to questions sent to Rabbi Elefant and Rabbi Juravel at 212-613-0621 or grossman@ou.org.  Each participant will receive a free copy of the The Daf HaKashrus-Daf HaShana, Volume 19.
