  1. Title: Maror and Corona
    Author: reouven Bouhanna ,

    Dear Rabbi Schachter,As you may know one of the corona symptoms is lack of sense of smell and taste (I have it and I can assure that we do not feel any taste besides salty, sugary and hot).I was wondering how we should accomplish the maror this year? And if we are able to make a brocho in light of the SA 475,3 that seems to require to feel the bitter taste.Thankfully and RespectfullyGood news for the all klal Israel and world in generalReouven Bouhanna

      Teacher Replyreouven Bouhanna, 

      Rav Schachter answered this question on the RCA call: He said that eventhough the types of vegetables that are acceptable for Maror is determinedby their bitter flavor, it is not essential for one to have that sensationwhen consuming the Maror. Therefore, even one who lost his sense of tastewould be a able to fulfill the mitzvah of Maror when eating thesevegetables.
