When OU Kosher presents its program, Kashrut and You: a Kosher Consumer Education Seminar on Sunday, February 14 from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Lander College in Kew Gardens Hills, Queens, it will once again call on distinguished rabbonim to address the various subjects under discussion.
The event is sponsored by the Harry H. Beren Foundation of Lakewood, NJ.

According to Rabbi Yosef Grossman, OU Director of Kosher Education who is coordinating the seminar, “We are most gratified that not only will an impressive team of OU kashrut experts headed by OU Kosher’s Chief Executive Officer Rabbi Menachem Genack and its Chief Operating Officer Rabbi Moshe Elefant be presenting on relevant kosher consumer issues, but they will be joined by two leading dynamic rabbinic personalities from outside the OU as well.”

“Rabbi Moshe Tuvia Lieff,who recently moved from a rabbinic position in Minneapolis to become Rav of Agudas Yisroel Bais Binyomin in Brooklyn, will discuss In-Town Kashrut Versus Out-of-Town Kashrut – The Maalot (Advantages)and Chesronot (Drawbacks) of Each.” He will be joined by the well known Rav and Marbitz Torah Rabbi Noach Isaac Oelbaum of Kew Gardens Hills who will discuss Eating Foods that are a Sakonoh (Danger). We look forward to a very enjoyable and enlightening kosher consumer educational seminar,” Rabbi Grossman declared.
