Yes, it is. OU
Though they look similar to peanuts - which are not considered kosher for Passover by the majority of Ashkenazi Jews - cashews are kosher for Passover. The reason for this i…s that peanuts are not, in fact, nuts - they're legumes, as are peas and beans. Whereas peas and beans do not fall into the Five Grains category (wheat, oats, spelt, barley, rye, as listed in the Torah) known as chametz that are forbidden to us at this time of year, they are classified as kitniyot - that is, "small things." Kitniyot are not forbidden by the Torah but, as flour that could be confused with flour from the Five Grains, a rabbinic decision was made to also avoid these. There is, however, no religious reason to avoid them. Sephardic and Mizrahi Jews eat them during Passover and nowadays many Ashkenazi (especially those following vegetarian or vegan diets) do too. Cashews, however, are not legumes - they're nuts, and all nuts are kosher for Passover.
Green beans are kitniyot so Ashkenazi Jews don't eat them during Passover.
Like many things Jewish, it depends. Jews from Europe other than Spain ("Ashkenazim") have a tradition not to eat it since rice flour in particular was commonly stored in the …same place that wheat flour was stored, leading to confusion as to what was permitted and what was not permitted and what matzot was made out of, and hence for simplicity was banned. Jews from Spain ("Sephardim") and the Middle East find rice acceptable tend to eat it, although the custom is to check it three times before using it in any form other than recognizable rice (such as rice flour) as a cooking ingredient to make sure it is not something else that is not permitted. The Torah instructs a Jew not to eat (or even possess) chometz all seven days of Passover (Exodus 13:3). "Chometz" is defined as any of the five grains (wheat, spelt, barley, oats, and rye) that came into contact with water for more than 18 minutes. This is a serious Torah prohibition, and for that reason we take extra protective measures on Passover to prevent any mistakes. Which brings us to another category of food called "kitniyot". This includes rice, corn, legumes (soy beans, string beans, peas, lentils, peanuts, etc), mustard, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and poppy seeds. Even though kitniyot cannot technically become chometz, Ashkenazi Jews do not eat them on Passover. Why? The Smak (Rabbi Moshe of Kouchi, 13th century, France) explains that products of kitniyot appear like chometz products. For example, it can be hard to distinguish between rice flour (kitniyot) and wheat flour (chometz). Therefore, to prevent confusion, all kitniyot was prohibited. The Beit Yosef (Rabbi Yosef Karo, 16th century, Israel) notes that grains may become mixed together with kitniyot, and one may inadvertently come to eat actual chometz. Here's an article that may help explain a bit more, found at Rabbi Simons, "Kosher for Passover", See Related Links for the URL.
No, but pareve is a part of kashrut. Within the laws of kashrut, foods fall into one of three categories: dairy, meat, pareve. Pareve refers to neutral foods that do not c…ontain any meat or dairy, this includes: vegetables, fruits, all edible plants, eggs, and fish.
Bird's Custard Powder is kosher and parev. Instant, Instant Low Fat, and Ready To Serve are all kosher but dairy (not chalav yisrael).
Yes, only if they are specifically certified kosher for passover. You can find kosher for Passover olives at any Jewish supermarket
No. For instance, fruit from a tree that is less than three years old is neither meat nor dairy, but it isn't kosher. And many fish are not kosher. Eggs with blood spots are n…ot kosher. Wine that hasn't been cooked, and is handled by a gentile or someone who doesn't keep Shabbat becomes non-kosher , but it doesn't become meat or dairy.
Kosher means the food is allowed to be consumed by a Jewsihperson, Pareve simply means it's neither milk nor meat the most common examples are fish, eggs, and produce.
Peas are kitniyot so they are not eaten by Ashkenazi Jews during Passover.
Kosher literally means 'fit'. When food is kosher it means that the food was prepared following the laws of kashrut (Jewish dietary law). (meat- animals that chew their cud an…d have split hooves, fish- fins and scales, all meat must be killed a certain humane way. Milk can only come from a kosher animal, milk and meat cannot be mixed, etc) The word parve is a term used to describe a certain type of kosher food. Something that is parve is dairy and meat free and includes all fruits and vegetables, eggs, and fish. This term is helpful in identifying whether a food can be mixed with meat or milk. There are four categories of food in kashrut: fleishig - containing meatmilchig - containing dairyparve - non- dairy, non- meattreif - not kosher Note: Although fish is considered pareve, it is tradition that fish and meat are not served on the same plate. Also, some groups do not combine fish and dairy.
Science Diet dog food does not have chumetz (leaven) in it, but it does have kitnyot (legumes). Since the food is created in a factory that is not supervised for Passove…r, you should buy the food before Passover so even if there is 1/60 chumetz, you are safe.
One should eat only foods that are certified kosher for Passover. Any leavened products should not be eaten. Thus, any product made of grains such wheat, barley, and oat…s that are come in contact with water and are allowed to sit, the leavening process begins and the food is considered chametz.
I'm not really Jewish but I've heard that on Passover it's a religious service called a Seder where the families gather around and drink four cups of wine, eating matza and pa…rtaking of symbolic foods placed on the Passover Seder Plate. I also googled the Seder plate and it turned out that it's a plate that contains 6 symbolic foods .. Maror and Chazeret: Two types of bitter herbs, symbolizing the bitterness and harshness of the slavery which the Jews endured in Ancient Egypt. For maror, many people use freshly grated horseradish or whole horseradish root. Chazeret is typically romaine lettuce, whose roots are bitter-tasting. Either the horseradish or romaine lettuce may be eaten in fulfillment of the mitzyah of eating bitter herbs during the Seder.Charoset: A sweet, brown, pebbly paste of fruits and nuts, representing the mortar used by the Jewish slaves to build the storehouses of Egypt.Karpas: A vegetable other than bitter herbs, usually parsley but sometimes something such as celery or cooked potato, which is dipped into salt water (Ashkenazi custom), vinegar (Sephardi custom), or charoset (older custom, still common amongst Yemenite Jews) at the beginning of the Seder.Zeroa: A roasted lamb bone, symbolizing the korban Pesach (Pesach sacrifice), which was a lamb offered in the Temple in Jerusalem and was then roasted and eaten as part of the meal on Seder night.Beitzah: A roasted egg, symbolizing the korban chagigah (festival sacrifice) that was offered in the Temple in Jerusalem and was then eaten as part of the meal on Seder night. Many modern Jews include an orange on the seder plate. The orange represents the fruitfulness for all Jews when all marginalized peoples are included, particularly gay men and lesbians. During the holiday of Passover, all leavened food products and products made from the forbidden grains are not eaten. Additionally, Ashkenazi Jews have a category of food called 'kitniyot' which are allowed items but aren't eaten because they could be confused with foods that aren't allowed. In principle, anything that does not contain leavening. Such foods as bread, crackers, cake or cereals are not eaten. We eat fruit, vegetables, kosher meat and fish, and kosher dairy. Matzoh takes the place of bread. Ashkenazim (Jews of European descent) have a binding custom to avoid legumes, peas and lentils. In practice, any processed food should have a passover kosher certification.
All those that are listed as pareve, obviously! Which list are you talking about anyway?
Yes, so long as it's labeled kosher for Passover.
