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.”
