A new series of short videos seeks to provide answers to such questions as “Is your sukkah built to code?” or “Is a Slurpee permissible to consume?” “OU & YOU”, a partnership between the Orthodox Union (OU) and Kosher.com, is an 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 at kosher.com and OU Kosher.
The series is comprised of short videos (most under 2 minutes), audio programs and articles. Of the eight current videos available, the first three concern one’s sukkah, the following four discuss eruv tavshilin, and the eighth concerns happiness on Yom Tov. The videos show Rabbi Elefant speaking while seated in a library, directing his attention slightly off-camera, while calm music plays in the background. There will be more videos posted on the channel focused around specific holidays, as well as broader questions about the laws of kashrut.
“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 navigate through all aspects of Jewish living.”
“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,” says Mordy Herzog, CEO, Royal Wine Corporation and Kayco. “With the addition of ‘OU & YOU’, Kosher.com is the one-stop resource for everything and anything kosher.”
