Hagala Materials

by Rabbi Dovid Bendory, II Adar 5765 (April 2005)

What materials can be kashered by hagala? What materials can't?

There are also many other modern man-made materials that generally fall into one of the above categories. Note that there is a fundamental argument in kashrut over all these materials: some say that all materials can be kashered unless the Torah states otherwise while others say that the Torah listed only those materials that are able to be kashered and all others are not. Consult with your rabbi for the proper custom.
