KOSHER MASTERY IN 8 HOURS
KOSHER MASTERY IN 8 HOURS
My neighbor seems hesitant to eat in my house because of my kosher standards and I can't figure out why.
I often use Google as my kosher resource and am left with conflicting answers.
I feel uncomfortable calling my Rabbi with a question because I'm nervous it may sound foolish.
I learned the laws of kosher many years ago and am ready for a refresher course.
Courses are presented by Rabbi Nosson Dubin, Rabbinic Administrator for the Houston Kashrus Association, and a scholar at the Kollel of Houston Torah Center.
Rabbi Dubin dedicated many years learning, teaching, and researching the broad spectrum of kosher law, and deals with intricate Kosher-related dilemmas daily.
Rabbi Dubin is also the author of a comprehensive in-depth analysis of the laws of Kashrus (Ha'tzaas Hashulchan; 247 pages; Hebrew), which has become a standard text for many scholars for Semichah exam preparation.

I have known Rabbi Noson Dubin, both personally and professionally, for many years. As both a dear friend and a respected colleague, he has proven to be a sincere, hard-working, and productive individual; an asset to any and all projects he undertakes and situations in which he finds himself. More. He sees a need and hears in it a call to action. He uses his talents and knowledge and his commitment to community, and gets straight to the task. His online course in the areas of kashruth law and observance which are needed on a daily basis are the direct result of this sense of duty and are a great expression of everything mentioned above.
I have spent many hours with him discussing various aspects of kashruth, specifically to their practical applications in one's home, in restaurants and caterers, and in administering a local kashuth agency. I can confidently say he is a very competent and accomplished individual. I reviewed a sample of the course material and it is presented in a very easy-to-understand fashion. I highly recommend it to newcomers and accomplished scholars alike.
Rabbi Nosson Dubin, a dear friend and former chaver kollel, has studied Hilchos Kashrus with the relevant sugyos for many years and is the author of a comprehensive sefer on Hilchos Ta’aruvos.
He is well known locally for his organized and systematic teaching style, presenting public shiurim on kashrus and other topics in our community. It was therefore with great pleasure that I heard about the audio-visual program he is creating for use in disseminating knowledge of kashrus laws to the greater public.
He is already a popular resource for kashrus-related queries, fielding questions on a regular basis, while maintaining strong relationships with respected rabbanim and kashrus professionals. We can only wish him continued success in adding to the knowledge of hilchos kashrus among אחינו בני ישראל.
Rav - Young Israel of Houston
Rabbi Dubin has been working for the Houston Kashrus Association for the past few years and his direction and diligence has helped to bring dramatic positive changes to our organization. In addition, he is building for himself a national reputation for his excellence in so many facets of the world of kashrus. Rabbi Dubin has been an invaluable resource in his capacity as Rabbinic Administrator. Having studied and taught Hilchos Kashrus for many years, he has a clear grasp on all kashrus-related topics, and works to stay current in trending halachic issues. I have found Rabbi Dubin's conclusions to be consistently correct and on target regarding kashrus dilemmas, policies, and food service protocols.
