Renowned kosher authority Rabbi Eliezer Eidlitz is returning to Tucson to lead his acclaimed “Yes, It’s Kosher!” supermarket walking tour on Sunday, March 31, in advance of Passover.  Eidlitz last led the tour in Tucson in 2017. This year’s event will be held from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at the Albertson’s at 2854 N. Campbell Ave. (at Glenn Street).

The free tour, co-sponsored by Congregation Chofetz Chayim, the Southwest Torah Institute and Albertson’s, includes food samples and wine tastings. Participants will have the opportunity to get answers to their kosher questions, as well as learning about what’s new in kosher in 2019. 

Eidlitz is director of the Kosher Information Bureau. The bureau’s website, www.kosherquest.org, is the world’s largest kosher food information site, listing over 30,000 products that are reliably certified as kosher. Supermarkets, manufacturers, and the media consult with Eidlitz, who has directed the Kosher Information Bureau for over 30 years. He is the author of a comprehensive kosher food reference guide, “Is It Kosher?” Eidlitz attended the Ponevez Yeshiva in Israel and received his ordination from Ner Israel Rabbinical College in Baltimore, Maryland.
