Questions as these, and many more came up in the WhatsApp group of “Questions and answers provided by RCE (20.1.19) Sunday 14th of Shvat. The shiur and Halachic rulings were given by Rabbi Pinchas Leibush Padva , member of The Rabbinical Council Of Europe.

The Rabbis of RCE have the option to belong the WhatsApp group of “questions and answers provided by RCE”. The group was launched due to popular demand. It creates a platform for discussion of Halachic decisions.

The request was submitted during the most recent RCE conference by Director General Rabbi of RCE Rabbi Arie Goldberg and Deputy Director General of RCE Rabbi Yosef Bainhaker. The council approved of creating the new platform, confirming active co-operation by replying to questions and participating in discussions. RCE reached a conclusion to implement a class every month based on the Rabbis requests.

Numerous European Rabbis presented questions to Hagaon Rabbi Pinchas Leibush Padwa who opened with a concise Halachic introduction of Kashrus in relative’s homes, then replied to every one of the submitted questions. The Rabbi concluded by thanking RCE for investing time and effort in this invaluable initiative.
