A full crowd participated in the continuing legal holiday shiur series presented this past Monday, January 16. Initiated by R’ Aaron Cyperstein in 2006, the shiurim have brought meaning to these days for mispallelim at Khal Adas Yereim of Kew Gardens. Rabbi Chaim Schwartz, Executive Vice President of the Vaad Harabbonim of Queens, articulated on the topic of kashrus issues that arise during midwinter break. Some of the concerns discussed included coffee at rest stops, airplanes, or hotels; using microwaves at Airbnbs; kashering grills; eating packaged cut-up fruits and vegetables; and buying raw fish from unsupervised stores.
