In addition to the Harry H. Beren Foundation of New Jersey, a variety of individuals and businesses will be co-sponsors of the program.

Following greetings by the Mora D’Asra Rav Moshe Tuvia Lieff, the sessions will consist of the following:

  • 8:10 p.m. Understanding Bishul Akum with Rabbi Menachem Genack, CEO of OU Kosher;
  • 8:50 p.m. What Could Be Wrong With…? With Rabbi Moshe Elefant, COO and Executive Rabbinic Coordinator of OU Kosher;

According to Rabbi Yosef Grossman, the event’s MC and Senior Educational Rabbinic Coordinator of OU Kosher, “We look forward to once again presenting a Harry H. Beren ASK OU OUTREACH program involving the OU’s renowned kashrus experts in Brooklyn, and specifically at Agudas Yisroel Bais Binyomin. We anticipate that once again we will encounter a large crowd of both men and women at the shul who wish to be educated in the latest innovations in OU quality kashrus supervision. We appreciate the warm encouragement of the OU’s kashrus educational programs by the esteemed Mora D’Asra Rav Moshe Tuvia Lieff, shlita.”
