Slaughtering a Turkey, Considering Kashrut

By Tali Biale

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, June 2010

The author writes about his evolving thinking regarding kashrut, Jewish law pertaining to permitted and forbidden food. He says that kashrut asks us to take a step closer to our food: to know where it came from and how it made its way onto our plates, and to acknowledge the process of eating.
