The Jewish Dietary laws
By Rosie Chance
'These are the animals which you may eat...
Anything which has a completely split hoof
And chews cud, this you may eat...'
A) A detailed account of the Jewish Food laws and their origins
'Kashrut' is what makes up the body of Judaism, deals with what foods Jews can and cannot eat, as well as how those foods must be prepared in order for them to be considered 'kosher' (fit to eat). 'Kashrut' is copied from the Hebrew root Kaf-Shin-Resh, which means fit, correct, good and proper. The word kosher is used to describe ritual objects that are made in agreement with the Jewish law and are healthy for ritual use. Food that is not kosher is commonly referred to as treyf, literally meaning torn from the commandment. All plants are kosher, but not all animals, birds and fish. All the animals must be killed in a special way, before they can be eaten by the Jews. Jews think that kosher food has been blessed by a rabbi, but this is not so there are foods which neither contain meat nor dairy produce for example
