OU Kosher Presents Pre-Pesach Program in Riverdale, April 6

21 Mar 2014

With Passover approaching, OU Kosher announces a Special Community Pre-Pesach Event to be held Sunday, April 6, at the Riverdale Jewish Center, 3700 Independence Avenue.  The program begins at 8 p.m. and there is free admission.

This will be one of three pre-Passover programs set for the New York Metropolitan area across the spectrum of Torah observance – in Riverdale for a modern Orthodox audience; in Boro Park, for a chasidish 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. The Riverdale Jewish Center is co-sponsor of the April 6 program, to which the entire Riverdale community is invited.

Rabbi Zvi Sobolofsky, Rosh Yeshiva at RIETS and Rabbi of Congregation Ohr HaTorah in Bergenfield, NJ, will lead off the program with “Halachic Insights into the Seder.” This will be followed by Rabbi Akiva Tendler, OU Kosher Rabbinic Coordinator and author of “I am Your Servant,” who will give a PowerPoint presentation on “What’s New at the OU for Pesach 2014.”  Rabbi Grossman will serve as host and moderator. A question and answer period will follow each session.

Everyone attending will receive a free copy of the OU’s iconic Guide to Passover 2014, which has just been published.
