Kashrut: Reining in Expenses

By Rachel Kahn-Troster

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, April 2010

Using a halakhic text that teaches that one should eat simply during the rest of the week so that one has the means to eat more lavishly on Shabbat as a jumping-off point, Kahn-Troster considers the cost of keeping kosher. She suggests ways to moderate the increased cost as well as refine Jewish eating - from becoming vegetarian to adopting guidelines for the kosher catering industry - that will bring a true sense of sacredness and celebration to holidays and Shabbat.
