Jewish Recipes --> Judaism --> Living kosher is living like a Jew -- All questions of Kosher and Kashrut should be directed to a reliable Rabbi

What does Keeping Kosher mean?

Without food we can't live. We all have heard the famous line, "Man does not live by bread alone..."

The verse comes from Torah [Bible] and is a reference to the miraculous manna, which fell from heaven daily during the Jewish people's sojourn in the wilderness. The conclusion of the verse is that "rather, by the utterance of God's mouth does man live." Thus, it is reminding us about the true source of human sustenance and where it comes from.

What Kosher is NOT:

The modern World has often thought the "laws of kosher" were based on hygiene. It was believed by some that kosher animals were healthier to eat than non-kosher animals. It was also noted that the laws of purity (Leviticus 11-15) not only describe the difference between clean and unclean animals, but also describe other phenomena related to health. Thus, it was natural for many to assume that all the laws of kashrut were merely hygienic in intent and origin. Also wrong is the belief that kosher means blessed by a Rabbi.

What make something un-Kosher?

Food may be designated non-kosher for a several of reasons. They include the species involved (for example; pig and fish without scales and fins) the manner in which the food was processed (animal improperly slaughtered, or the mixing of milk and meat); or time (leavened product not properly disposed of prior to Passover or food cooked on the Sabbath).

You are what you eat and the spiritual connection between man and God.

What Kosher is:  Basically, Dietary laws or rules

Rules such as do not mix milk and meat to which animals you can eat. There is nothing intrinsically wicked about eating pork or lobster, and there is nothing intrinsically moral about eating cheese or chicken instead. But what the Jewish way of life does by imposing rules on our eating, sleeping, and working habits is to take the most common and mundane activities and invest them with deeper meaning, turning every one of them into an occasion for obeying (or disobeying) God.
