The Harry H. Beren Foundation of New Jersey has renewed its annual grant to OU Kosher to support programs of kashrut education, such as ASKOU and Visit OU. The Foundation has been sponsoring OU Kosher programs since 2006. Rabbi Yosef Grossman, Senior Educational Rabbinic Coordinator of OU Kosher, administers the Beren programs.
“The president of the Foundation told me that he was gratified to be able to provide the same level of assistance as in past years,” said Rabbi Yosef Grossman. “Obviously, there are many requests for these grants, and the Foundation’s assets must be maintained very carefully. It is a source of great pride that OU kashrut educational programs have become a regular recipient of Beren Foundation funding.”
Rabbi Menachem Genack, OU Kosher CEO, declared: “The value of the OU’s kashrut education programs has once again been affirmed by the Harry H. Beren Foundation of New Jersey. Just this week, a yeshiva junior high school class visited the OU for a program arranged by Rabbi Yosef Grossman. Next week, it could be a group of senior rabbonim. Our programs reach out to all ages and all levels of kosher knowledge. The grant from the Beren Foundation will facilitate our educational outreach in the year ahead.”
