Halacha - cooking on a stove that a non jew turned on
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

Halacha - Dairy Bread
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: First of all, many opinions hold that only true bread products have this limitation, and not crackers that are mezonos. Additionally, sometimes these products are not truly dairy, for example Thomas English Muffins have less than 1/60 dairy ingredients. Your best bet is to contact the Hashgacha thst supervises the to inquire.

Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: Presumably the food you served your young son was not scalding hot, therefore it is sufficient to clean both forks very well, preferably in a bathroom etc. sink.

Halacha - Treif food in microwave
Submitted by a jew  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: If he turned on the microwave and the food was uncovered long enough to splatter or emit steam, it is questionable if the microwave can be kashered at all. If the food was covered or only hot briefly, there is room to be lenient and the microwave should be thoroughly cleaned, left 24 hours unused, and a cup or bowl of water should be boiled on high for a number of minutes until the microwave if full of steam and the walls are wet.

Halacha - treif silverware in dishwasher
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: The treif fork does not make the other items in the dishwasher non-Kosher. Ideally all the forks should be kashered out of concern that each one may be the treif one, but if this is difficult the Halacha is that one may rely on the majority of Kosher forks. In any event, all the forks should not be used for 24 hours.

Halacha - grape juice
Submitted by Adam  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: Since it could potentially ferment into wine, it has the Halachos of stam yeinam. The issue is raised in Poskim if additives to the wine would make fermentation impossible if theses Halachos still apply, but the consensus is that they do.

Halacha - kashrut
Submitted by Anna  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

Cheese is significantly more problematic than milk, because for cheese all Poskim agree that Chazal enacted a strict, absolute requirement for direct Jewish supervision since rennet from the stomach of a nevaila, an animal that was not slaughtered according to halacha, was typically used to congeal the milk into its solid state of cheese.

Even when it is known with certainty that no problematic ingredients are present, it is universally accepted that a Jew must be present. In addition to watching the process, the Shach and other Achronim require a Jew to actively and physically participate in adding the enzymes to the milk. Most mehadrin hechsherim follow this opinion. The halacha for the milk base is identical for cheese as it is for liquid milk, and one who relies on Reb Moshe's heter for Cholov Stam may use cheese derived from Cholov Stam, provided the cheese-making process was directly under Jewish inspection.

Question:
Answer: It would not be assur as hana'ah, since you are not deriving any pleasure from the actual basar b'chalav itself. However it is not very appropriate.

Halacha - Kashrut
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: Assuming the pizza was hot at the time, the knife needs hagala, immersion in boiling water. I have detailed the procedure in other places, but if you have never done it before you may be best off asking for assistance from someone more experienced.

Halacha - worms in Fish
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: The hechsher on the fish may not be taking responsibility for worms and it may be difficult to check yourself. Each Kashrus organization has a different policy, and you need to either familiarize yourself with them or peruse a list as to which fish are never problematic. If you have specific questions, I can try to be of assistance.
