EXCLUSIVE PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN THE OU & KOSHER.COM OFFERS NEW SERIES “OU & YOU” THAT ANSWERS THESE FAQ’S AND MORE

OU Kosher COO Rabbi Moshe Elefant is Among the Authorities Featured, Addressing Kashrut and Jewish Law

NYC, NY, October 3, 2017 – If you’ve ever wondered if your sukkah is built to code or if your Slurpee is permissible, you may find the answer in the new series “OU & You,” a partnership between the Orthodox Union (OU) and Kosher.com, the premier kosher food and Jewish lifestyle website.

“OU & YOU” is a free, informative resource that answers questions people frequently ask, especially at different times of the year. Hosted by Rabbi Moshe Elefant, COO of OU Kosher, along with content from other kashrut authorities at the OU, the series is accessible to all. It is comprised of short videos (most are under 2 minutes), audio programs and articles.

“Kosher.com is the #1 visited website for kosher cooking and lifestyle recipes and videos. Kosher.com offers new, seasonal content, stunning photography, vibrant cooking demos and cooking shortcut videos that make it the ‘go-to’ resource for all cooks, from beginner to gourmet and any skill in between. And now, with the addition of ‘OU & YOU’, kosher.com is the one-stop resource for everything and anything kosher.

The ‘OU & YOU’ platform is easily searchable and organized by subject. There are also “miniseries” based on specific seasons. Kosher Summer, for instance, guides travelers through everything from the rules on cooking on a public grill to how to pray on an airplane.

“We’re delighted to present ‘OU & You’” to the public,” said Rabbi Elefant. “We believe the series will be a helpful resource to anyone with questions about the rules of law regarding kosher food, cooking and lifestyle. We hope the series will encourage knowledgeable people, as well as those who are just learning, to discuss the many fascinating aspects of Jewish living.”

The “OU & You” library is frequently updated with new content. Current episodes include the halacha of building a sukkah, what to do about cooking on Yom Tov for Shabbat, and will soon include hundreds of videos, audios and printed information related to Kosher law and Jewish living.
