Chief Rabbi Yosef’s Instructions and Prayer concerning the Corona OutbreakMarch 17, 2020
Rav Schachter: Mikvah / AvelutMarch 17, 2020
March 17, 2020 –
On yesterday’s call, Rav Schachter was asked about relying on bittul of chametz ingredients before Pesach for food products that may not be available due to shortages. Because some chametz ingredients may not be battel due to noten ta’am or davar ha-ma’amid, he referred us to the OU.
In a conversation with Rabbi Genack today, he told me that he was assured by suppliers that there would be sufficient kosher for Passover food. If, closer to the holiday, there is a crisis, the OU will issue guidelines.
