Define Shatnez

Shatnez ( Hebrew שעטנז) is the prohibition in Jewish law derived from the Torah that prohibits the wearing of a fabric containing both wool and linen (linsey-woolsey); this forbidden mixture is referred to in Judaism as shatnez. The relevant parts of the Torah (Leviticus 19:19 and Deuteronomy 22:5, 22:9-11) prohibit an individual from wearing wool and linen fabrics in one garment, the interbreeding of different species of animals, and the planting together of different kinds of seeds (collectively known as kilayim).

Pas Yisroel (Pat Israel)

Pat (pas) Israel (Hebrew: פת ישראל) is Jewish Supervision including the lighting of the oven flames which are restricted from being lit by gentiles. Many observant Jews are relaxed in this restriction.

The flip side of the term is Pas Nochri (Hebrew: פת נכרי) or Pat Akkum (Hebrew: פת עכו”ם) which is a bread (some says cookies) made from the five grain, baked by a non-Jew.

Define Nesech Wine יין נסך

During the times of Chazal, it was common for non-Jews to pour wine libations as a means of serving idols. Such wine is called yayin nesech (Hebrew: יין נסך), and a Jew may not derive any benefit from this wine. Due to this concern, Chazal enacted a gezeira (decree) which forbade the use of any wine which has been poured by a non-Jew, whether or not it was intended as a form of idol worship. This wine is known as stam yeinom.
