STAR-K’s Chicken Webinar Attracts Rabbonim, Mashgichim and Consumers Around the World

By Margie Pensak. STAR-K’s recent successful interactive Chicken Webinar, attracted over 325 registrants from across the US, Canada, Israel, and Australia, including over 150 rabbonim and rabbonim machshirim. Utilizing pictures, audio, chat and videos, STAR-K’s Rabbinic Administrator, Rabbi Moshe Heinemann shlita, taught consumers and rabbonim, alike,  how to differentiate between a chicken’s perfectly normal imperfection  resulting from processing and an imperfection that presents a true shayla in need of being addressed by your Rav. 

The Chicken Webinar is a part of STAR-K’s ongoing, unique Halacha Webinar series, which includes an Eruvinar and Mikvanar. It featured a video of a slaughterhouse tour which highlighted how post-schechting problems evolve due to handling.

“By harnessing available technologies, we are able to reach out and teach Torah in an innovative way,” notes STAR-K Kashrus Administrator, Rabbi Zvi Goldberg, who moderates the series. “It is much more hands-on than a typical lecture.”

This was attested to by the positive feedback received from webinar participants. Here is just a sampling:

“What a great idea! The visuals were excellent – as well as the content.”

“The webinar was very informative and raised issues that I was not aware of (gangrene in the leg, ever min hachai in connection with the wing, for example)….The handout given at the end was very helpful in summarizing everything.”

“The whole presentation was very, very informative. I learned a ton–from the basics that our Bubbies knew automatically (and I’m a Bais Yaakov graduate).”
