Kashrut Concept

Kashrut: The Jewish millennial wisdom

Kashrut is a group of laws that give rules to the food standards of Judaism.
These rules emphasize that Judaism is more than a “religion”, in the formal sense.

They play a vital role in life, existence and continuity from the Jewish people until our days.

Over the history, the fulfillment of the kashrut laws is an unmistakable attribute from the Jewish identity. It is also the biggest differential that contrasts the Judaism from the other religions.

Now, millions of people around the world are worried in living a healthier life (https://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/04/13/more-people-choosing-kosher-for-health/), materially and spiritually.

Proper nutrition is a very common subject. That’s why, curiously, even not Jewish people take these Jewish nutrition rules for themselves.

Only in United States, the food that follows the kashrut standards gets to US$ 150 billion dollars yearly. And they reach not only the observant Jew, but the consumer in general that is worried about his safety nutrition.

The American food industry frequently associates the kosher stamp to a “premium” stamp, to fuel the market that grows internationally.

Now, this millennial wisdom could also be found in the best hotels and restaurants around the world.

This was literally translated for the best taste in gastronomy, luxury and refinement.

Eating particles of G-d

The Jewish tradition teaches that prohibited food, that is written in Torah, Jewish holy book, contains spiritual essences that affect the Jewish soul.

They contain spiritual essences that harm your soul and weaken your faith.

Giving an example:  when eating birds of prey or even other carnivorous animals, its natural hostility could be absorbed.

As a result, it is possible to fall under the influences of the animals aggressive characteristics.

The Hebrew word “kosher” or “casher”, literally means “appropriate”.

This way the Jew who is careful of eating only allowed food, encourages his Jewish soul in a powerful way.

A Jew who feeds himself of allowed animals, he absorbs his virtues.

This way he could become an enlightened, refined and high person.
