You Are What You Eat, So Eat Kosher!
This week's Torah Portion, Shemini, teaches us about the laws of kosher food. Kosher means "fit" or "proper." To live the way G-d wants, we must only eat certain foods. Here are some kosher fun facts:
In general, there are three types of food:
- Fish must have fins and scales.
- Animals have to both chew their cud and have split hooves.
- We only eat those birds which we know to be kosher by tradition.
- Insects and all reptiles and amphibians are unkosher. (Certain locusts are kosher, but they are not commonly eaten.)
1) Fleishig - meat and fowlThe Torah states three times, "You shall not boil a young goat in its mother's milk." This means that we should not eat, cook, or benefit from using milk and meat together.
2) Milchig - milk, cheese and all dairy products
3) Pareve - fish, eggs, fruits, vegetables, drinks
