Yashan: Are There Gray Areas about Grain Areas?

How could detente with the Soviet Union effect the kashrus of your home? What kashrus distinction could there be between a crunchy pretzel and a chewy pretzel? These questions and more are answered by Rabbi David Gorelik, a Rabbinic Coordinator with OU Kashruth with special expertise in Yashan flour production. “Yashan” has reference to the five primary grains and when they took root, and it impacts on products as disparate as bread and vinegar. This is a clear and thorough guide to a lesser-known area of halacha: don’t miss it! If you have questions or comments for Rabbi Gorelik please send them to: gorelikd@ou.org
