“Kashrut: Is it Good for You?”
Chaburah Torah Study is Back! Enjoy Parashat Shemini with Charlie Spielholz
Dietary laws are described throughout the Torah. However, for at least some of these laws, the Torah does not provide a reason for following them. We will explore what many sages and scholars have thought about a portion of the laws of kashrut that are described in parashat Shemini, specifically clean versus unclean beasts, birds, fish, and insects. Following that presentation we will discuss possible reasons as to why the Torah has required the Jewish people to adhere to these uniquely Jewish dietary laws.
