    Adar II, 5774Dear Friend,Once again, in the hope of increasing your Pesach convenience and limiting its cost, we are making available a copy of this years Guide to Cosmetics and Medications. The Guide is the original research of Rabbi Gershon Bess ", Rav of the Congregation Kehilas Yaakov, and an alumnus of Kollel Los Angeles. Rights to reprint all or any parts thereof are reserved.While several prominent Rabbonim have questioned the need for this list, Rav Yosef Shalom Eliyashiv ", Rav Shmuel Wosner ", and other gedolei yisroel have urged, both for reasons in Halacha and Minhag, that the established practice be continued. (See further Understanding the Halochos and List).Items Kosher LPesach last year may have been found unacceptable this year. Use this years Guide for this year only. For any further questions, you may email Rabbi Bess at rgbess@hotmail.com; or, to put yourself on the future mailing list, you may fax us at (323) 933-7493.As a community Kollel, our Kollel Shiurim Program continues to respond to a generation that seeks to know. Hundreds of adults presently participate in twenty-five different shiurim and Torah study groups.This year the Kollel maintains an all learning component of thirteen avreichim who are totally and diligently immersed in the depths of Torah study. Thirty-nine years ago this summer, this unique entity was established as an exemplary expression of Community Kollel, lilmod first and also llamed. While shiurim and kiruv are important aspects of the institution, they are peripheral. The overriding focus is upon shteiging in learnen (growth in learning) on the part of the avreichim themselves. This is the keren. All other activities are peiros. This Kollel is first and foremost - a Kollel. We have stood, and continue to stand ", as a magnificent example for other American cities and neighborhoods, which are increasingly seeking to establish Kollelim.As a dynamic institution, there is rarely a year, bsd, that we are not privileged to a significant new development. Kollel Los Angeles does not insist that its avreichim enter avodas haKodesh. However, of some eighty alumni, all, but five or six are fully installed in positions of community leadership, , , , , and . Strikingly this year is a new most worthy entity. Rav Yosef Maller " has risen to the challenge of founding a new cohesive disciplined program for sixteen community members (not necessarily ) with under the leadership of Rav Aron Gettinger " who says a precise very well organized each week.

    ! ' ! ,

    We extend to each and every one our best wishes for a Chag Kosher VSameach.

  • Pesach 5774

    Dear Friend,

    Unlike fifty years ago, even the kosher novice can now easily identify a variety of acceptable foods in the supermarket, thanks to set kosher certification standards. The letter P, found next to the kosher logo, further classifies kosher supervised foods as permissible for Passover use.

    Medicines and cosmetics, however, have no such formal system of classification, and the kosher consumer is left bewildered as to their status. Many well-intentioned individuals have made the mistake of taking it upon themselves to refrain from taking prescribed medication during Pesach, simply because they assume that their several often unfamiliar ingredients may be chometz!

    The information found in this guide is based upon Rabbi Gershon Besss extensive research, conducted over several decades, with pharmaceutical manufacturers. In addition to serving as Rav of Congregation Kehilas Yaakov in Los Angeles, Rabbi Bess is considered a world renowned expert on Passover medications. The Star-K Pesach Kitchen and the Star-K 2014 Pesach Product Directory are included in this guide, as well as other Pesach information, such as Star-Ks initiative of bringing Mehadrin Kashrut standards to the Sephardic community. It is our hope that, especially with our new index and easier-to-find formatting, you will find this directory useful.

    With best wishes for a happy and kosher Pesach,

    Rabbi Moshe Heinemann Avrom PollakRabbinic Administrator President
