Students from Baltimore Yeshiva Visit the Orthodox Union

07 Mar 2006

As part of an ongoing series of visits from schools to the Orthodox Union, students from Torah Institute (Shearith Hapleitah) of Baltimore visited OU headquarters recently to learn more about the vast world of kashrut. Rabbi Abraham Juravel, Co-Director of the OU Kosher Ingredient Approval Registry, shared a late-breaking finding with the students about the halachot (Jewish laws) of milk water that has had all of its dairy components extracted.

According to Rabbi Yosef Grossman, Director of ASKOU and Kashrut Education for the OU, “We try to educate the youth in two ways. One is by sending speakers to schools, a program directed by Rabbi Dr. Eliyahu Safran. The other is by bringing students to OU facilities, which allows students to see the many aspects of kashrut up close.”

Rabbi Abraham Juravel addresses the students, while Rabbi Yosef Grossman looks on.
The students paid careful attention to the presentation.


The Orthodox Union, now in its second century of service to the Jewish community of North America and beyond, is a world leader in community and synagogue services, adult education, youth work through NCSY, political action through the IPA, and advocacy for persons with disabilities through Yachad and Our Way. Its kosher supervision label, the , is the world’s most recognized kosher symbol and can be found on over 409,000 products manufactured in 83 countries around the globe.
