To answer questions that frequently arise during the Passover season, when the dietary laws are different from the ones that govern the rest of the year, OU Kosher has launched a brand new website, www.oupassover.com.
The website is a one-stop-shop for all Passover related queries, ranging from recipe substitutes, to cleaning tips, to making a house kosher for Passover, to the proper amount of specific food and beverages to be consumed at the seder.
A featured topic is Medicine Guidelines which discusses creams, pills, injections, and liquid medicines that can be used on Passover, and what to do when a substitution is not possible. The website emphasizes that people should exercise extreme caution and consult with one’s doctor and rabbi before making a decision to not take a medicine.
A wide variety of information includes, among other topics, frozen fish; meat and poultry; alcoholic beverages; baby formula; and milk.
The website also contains the Jewish Action Guide to Kosher for Passover Foods as a pdf. download. The Guide lists products which the OU has certified as Kosher for Passover.
