Interesting encounter

We were visited last week by a very engaged and engaging chasidic couple. They brought their own wine, glasses, and home-made ruggelach, which was to be expected. What I did not expect was that they would not eat our fruit and our OU-certified oatmeal-raisin cookies.

Can you guess why not?

The fruit – grapes, bananas, and navel oranges – did not have seeds, and they were not sure if the raisins in the cookies came from grapes that had seeds.
