Ponovezh Students To Fast Over Possible ‘Shratzim' They Ate

Students at the Ponovezh Yeshiva took upon themselves to fast Thursday at the behest of their Rosh Yeshiva, Rabbi Shmuel Markowitz, because they may have inadvertently eaten "sharatzim." 

The students had approached their Rosh Yeshiva after some of them noticed earlier in the week that the food being served in the dining room had insects in it.

The Rosh Yeshiva heard the testimony of his students and after some deliberation decided that they should take upon themselves a fast day, which was announced Wednesday afternoon in the Yeshiva, due to the possibility that they might have eaten a forbidden food.
