To take Terumos and Maasros from your food item please follow the instructions below

1) Preparing the food – Separate slightly more than 1% of the edible part of the produce. Each type of food (e.g. avocados, potatoes) needs to be maasered separately. WARNING – ensure you do not separate less than the required amount.

2) Text MAASER to 07476 554 613 to receive permission to use the Federation’s coin. Text again for each individual food you are separating from.

3) Declaration – Upon receiving confirmation from MaaserText, make the following declaration:

“I hereby designate the required Terumos and Maasros, according to the Federation Beis Din’s nusach, and I hereby redeem any Maaser Sheni and Revai onto the coin that has been set aside for this by the Federation Beis Din in accordance with the Beis Din’s nusach, and the terms of usage of the coin.”

נוסח קצר:

כל ההפרשות של תרומת ומעשרות וחלולי מעשר שני ורבעי יחולו בזה כדת כמו שכתוב בנוסח של בית הדין של הפעדערישן ולפי התנאים של בית הדין.

4) The small amount of food separated, which is now Terumah and Terumas Maaser, should be well wrapped and thrown away. The rest of the produce may now be eaten.
