Glass and Kashrut
What status does glass have when it comes to kashrut. Can the same glassware be used for both meat and milk meals? What about products like pyrex? Join Rabbi Dovid Fink and learn the sources from the Gemara down through today’s leading poskim.
Glass and Kashrut: Glass Utensils and Kashrut
According to some authorities, glass is non-absorbent and therefore can be used for both milk and meat, for both kosher and non-kosher foods.
Others disagree, holding that glass absorbs and cannot be kashered.
We will survey the opinions of the leading authorities through the generations.
Sources are available through the links in both WORD format and pdf. In class we will translate and explain these sources.
