Judaism Unbound: Food

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

It has become easier than ever to keep kosher, even while eating with non-Jewish friends, yet the Torah (Lev. 20:26) describes these laws as a way of separating Israel from other nations. The Talmud adds many other food prohibitions on sharing wine, bread and oil with non-Jews. Some of these restrictions have been retained, and others mostly abandoned. What is gained and what is lost?
