Chodosh Update from Rabbi Yoseph Herman

The first traces of the start of the  Chodosh oats harvest have been issued by the US Dep’t of Agriculture.

My early estimate is that the oats could be a problem of Chodosh as early as the packing date of Jul 26, wheat as early as Aug 9 (these were the dates last year).

When final dates are determined I will issue an update.

Meanwhile, this is an early warning. For the next week or two it is definitely safe to store purchase and store items of importance to you without the need to worry about any Chodosh.
