Guinness announced that they are going vegan … but until then is this famous Irish stout kosher? Does adding dried out fish bladders when making beer, mead, or wine make it not kosher? Levi Cooper discusses.


The Maggid of Melbourne is an ongoing series by Rabbi Dr. Levi Cooper – teacher of Hasidut, community rabbi, lawyer, IDF reservist, father to six and native Australian – in which he shares some short Torah ideas on topics of current interest from his Pardes classroom, his research and from his shul in Zur Hadassa. To the Beit Midrash!
