The Earth on Your Fork: An Ecology of Kashrut

By David Seidenberg

Coalition for the Advancement of Jewish Education (CAJE), Summer 2008

How we eat is a huge piece of how we relate to the earth itself. Kashrut (Kosher laws) not only reflects the ecology of ancient Israel, it also impacts our sense of place and purpose in the greater world. The author explores a deeper ecological meaning to kashrut regarding which animals we eat, according to Jewish law.
