OU KOSHER’S MAN IN THE CONTROL TOWER

Meet Rabbi Michael Morris If you want to know where any of the 500 OU Kosher RFRs (rabbinic field representatives) are at any given time on any given day and how they got there, just ask Rabbi Michael Morris. It’s his job — and his passion. When Rabbi Morris, OU Kosher’s RFR traffic controller, joined the…

Lo Basi Ela L’Orer: ROV TASHMISHO

SHULCHAN Aruch (O.C. 451:6) says that one need only kasher a utensil according to the majority of the way it is used (rov tashmisho). Therefore, a bowl which is ordinarily used through iruy, can be kashered with iruy, even though occasionally it may be used as a pot cover. However, Rema says the minhag is…

The scale had been previously used in a kosher butcher shop. The scale was pre-programmed to include Shechitas Bais Yoseph. Lo and behold the…

Kli el Kli B’lo Rotaiv – Lo Basi Ela L’Orer

Tosfos (Chulin 108a tipas chalav) writes that if a drop of milk fell into a pot of meat, although it gives ta’am into the piece of meat that it touches, this ta’am will not transfer into other pieces of meat, even though they are touching, provided the first piece of meat is completely above the…

Milk from Non-Kosher Species and its Relationship with the US Kosher Dairy Industry

Does this affect the status of cholov stam?” At OU headquarters, we occasionally receive such inquires, and those of…
