GUIDELINES FOR SHEMITTAH PRODUCE

Pomegranates available at KOSHER WORLD and at FRESH FELLAS are approved by the Beth Din subject to the conditions below:

All Israeli fresh fruit which is currently available in South Africa, even under the ‘heter mechira’ is to be regarded as having Kedushat Shevi’it (sanctity of the seventh year).

Any Israeli vegetables should be avoided if at all possible. [Please note: ‘Israeli Tomatoes’ are locally grown and are not a product of Israel]

Purchasing the fruit, when buying from a Jew, should be done by credit card, not a cash payment.

The Terumot and Ma’asrot (Ma’aser Rishon and Ma’aser Oni) must be separated but without a b’rachah [Please see the UOS website under ‘Produce of Israel’].

The fruit must be eaten in the way they are generally eaten locally, as follows:

*
Edible fruit must not be given to non-Jewish guests or animals.
*Fruit that is usually eaten cooked (such as cooking apples) must not be eaten raw.
*Fruit that is usually eaten raw (such as an orange) must not be cooked.
*Fruit that is eaten both raw or cooked can be eaten either way.
*
Juice may only be extracted from fruit where this is normal practice, for example: oranges, apples or even pomegranates, but it is prohibited to extract juice from fruit where this is unusual.
*Leftovers, peels etc. which are still edible for either humans or animals must be wrapped first and only then be disposed of in the usual manner.
*If the fruit is cooked in a soup for example and adds flavour, all the food must be regarded as having Kedushat Shevi’it.
*Ensure that the fruit is consumed before the time ofbiur*, i.e. not beyond January 2016.
*A period when there is no longer any such produce in the fields.

KOSHER FOR PASSOVER SHELVES

Please note that the "Pesach section" in retail stores is not under Beth Din supervision. Our certification extends only to the products, and we have no control over how independent retailers pack their shelves. Please check the labels very carefully to ensure that the products are properly certified for Pesach.

KOSHERWORLD
is certified by the Kashrut Division and the Pesach shelves have been checked at this store.

UOS WEBSITE - PESACH SECTION

The Beth Din Pesach Guide is now available on our website http://www.uos.co.za/kashrut/pesach.asp .

The actual hard copy of the guide will be made available in selected Pick n Pay stores.

The selling of the Chametz should ideally be done personally through your local Rabbi. One can download a sale of Chametz From directly from the website or submit the online Sale of Chametz electronically.

IMPORTED PRODUCTS

Some imported products, especially from Israel, carry a valid Pesach hechsher but contain kitniyot or kitniyot derivatives. The custom amongst Ashkenazim is not to consume kitniyot. There are different opinions regarding kitniyot derivatives. Please check labels carefully and make your purchases in accordance with your customs.

Products bearing the OU or Star-K hechsher which are kosher for Pesach will have the letter “P” adjacent to the logo. The “P” is for Pesach, not Parev.

INGREDIENTS LISTING ON PRODUCTS

All Kosher for Pesach local products, the actual ingredients conform to our Pesach regulations, irrespective of what appears on the packaging.

EGG MATZAH

Chametz is only created by the fermentation of flour of one of the five major grains through the medium of water. Fermentation in the presence of all other liquids – such as fruit juices, wine or eggs – do not create Chametz. The mixture commonly known as Egg Matzah (although it is usually made today with apple or grape juice) may therefore be eaten during Pesach without any concerns of Chametz as long as no water is added to the mixture. If even a drop of water is added to the mixture or to any of its ingredients, the mixture may become Chametz almost immediately.

Because of the concern that water may have been added, the custom among Ashkenazim is to refrain from using Egg Matzah during Pesach, unless it is absolutely necessary for children or the elderly who would have difficulty eating regular Matzah; and even then they may not fulfil the Mitzvah of eating Matzah at the Seder with Egg Matzah.

APPROVED BABY FORMULA

Preferably one should use baby formula that is Kosher for Pesach.

If the above is not available then the following, although containing Kitniyot, may be used. However they should be used in separate vessels with separate utensils and washing-up facilities (that will not be used with Kosher for Pesach food items and utensils).

INFACARE® GOLD SOYA1 (PAREV)

INFACARE® GOLD SOYA2 (PAREV)
