In this extra-special video, the Orthodox Union’s prominent Poskim, Rav Yisroel Belsky, Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshiva Torah V’Da’as, and Rav Hershel Schachter, Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshivas Rabbenu Yitzchok Elchanon, return to focus on issues of practical halacha related to Pesach. This year’s topics include: Is Quinoa on the list of Kitniyos?; What areas need to be searched for chometz?; How do I prepare my oven and my sink? Do I need to worry about Cheerios in my daughter’s dollhouse? What distinguishes one kind of matzah from the other? Questions were drawn from within the OU and from e-mails sent in by interested consumers. Tune in and be awed and enlightened by the Poskim for OU Kashruth. Recorded live on – March 24, 2009 at OU World Headquarters in NY, NY.
Update (Pesach 2014): For the OU’s updated policy on Quinoa see here.
