Produce of Israel: Terumos, Maaseros and Orlah

81

!

Once again, the GTA has seen a wave of produce from Israel at Costco and other retailers. Fresh fruit including Jaffa clementines, Shoham pomegranates and grapes gave been spotted at local supermarkets. This produce is subject to the laws of separating Terumos and Maaseros such that Terumos and Maaseros must be separated. That said, the laws of separating Terumos and Maaseros are not as complicated as one might think and can be dealt with without too much difficulty so that Israeli produce can be enjoyed.  Fruit is additionally subject to the laws of Orlah, which prohibits the consumption of fruit borne to the tree for the first three years and mandates redemption of the fruit in the fourth. Before consuming fruits from Eretz Yisroel, it must be clear that there is no problem of Orlah. For information on how to separate Terumos and Maaseros please refer to an article on our website at https://cor.ca/view/61/ produce_of_israel_a_primer.html. To see a video demonstration, see the following link: https://www.cor.ca/ view/255/ video_instructional_tithing_produce_from_the_land_of_israel.html If you have a question about Orlah, please feel free to email us at theber@cor.ca It is important that we keep our eyes open when we shop. Israeli produce will be recognizable through a sticker indicating the country of origin on the surface of the fruit or vegetable. Canadian labeling law does require that a supermarket display the country of origin through appropriate signage, but signage is not always accurate. ____________________________________________________________________ Please visit our website at www.cor.ca for more kashrus information
