Kosher friendly

Organize your kosher friendly wedding, events, party, ecc.

What is it?

The Hebrew word “kosher” literally means “prepared.” Foods that are permitted by the Torah and prepared according to Jewish law are kosher.

The Torah forbids eating meat and milk in combination, and even forbids the act of cooking them together.

Kosher friendly = Tradizional kosher

Animals

permitted animal as those with fully split hooves, who also chew their cud (ruminants). Kosher animals are always mammals and herbivores.

Bird

The Torah enumerates 24 forbidden species of birds, in practice today, we eat only those birds for which there is an established tradition that the bird is kosher ― e.g. chicken, turkey, duck and goose.

As for “kosher eggs,” they come from a species of kosher bird (e.g. Chicken).

Fish

Torah teaches that a kosher fish must possess both fins and scales. (Fins help the fish swim, and scales are a covering over the body.) Even if the fish has only one scale or one fin, it is permitted. Tuna, for example, have very few scales, yet is kosher. Other popular kosher fish are bass, carp, cod, flounder, halibut, herring, mackerel, trout and salmon.

Crustaceans and other shellfish are not kosher, because they lack scales.

Why Keep Kosher?

In today’s modern world, why should we keep kosher?

Of course, the ultimate answer to this question is “because God said so.” Beyond this, however, there are practical, observable benefits to keeping kosher today:

Spirituality: The Torah teaches that non-kosher food has a negative effect on a Jewish soul.

Self Growth: If a person can be disciplined in what and when he eats, it follows that he can be disciplined in other areas of life as well.

Health Reasons: With its extra supervision, kosher food is perceived as being healthier and cleaner. After slaughter, animals are checked for abscesses in their lungs or other health problems. Blood ― a medium for the growth of bacteria ― is drained. Shellfish, mollusks, lobsters and crabs have spread typhoid and are a source for urticara (hives). Milk and meat digest at an unequal rate and are difficult for the body. And of course, pigs can carry trichinosis.

Moral Lessons: We are taught not to be cruel ― even to animals. A mother and her young are forbidden to be slaughtered on the same day, and of course we “don’t boil a kid (goat) in its mother’s milk.” We must not remove the limb of an animal while it is still alive (a common practice, prior to refrigeration). When we slaughter an animal, it must be done with the least possible pain. And we are reminded not to be vicious, by the prohibition to eat vicious birds of prey.

Tradition: with food so often the focus of social events, keeping kosher provides a built-in hedge against assimilation. For many, the bridge between past and future is the spiritual aroma of a kosher kitchen.

Dairy foods, Halavi
The Ghimel follow the jewish tradition of eating dairy food on Shavuoth for the following reason:
In the Shir ha Shirim refers to the sweet nourishing value of Torah by sayng “It drips from your lips, like honey and milk under your tongue.”
Upon receiving the Torah at Mount Sinai, the jews immediately became obligated in the law of sh’chita. Since they did not have time to prepare kosher meat, they eat dairy instead.
The numerical Value of milk – chalav – is 40. This hints to the 40 days that Moses spent atop Mount Sinai, and the 40 years the jews spent wandering the desert.
Shavuoth
God spoke to you from the midst of the fire; you were hearing the sound of words,but you werenot seeing a form, only a sound. He told you to keep the Ten Commandments, and He inscribed them on two stone tablets. (Deut. 4:12-13)

What is Lorem Ipsum?

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Where does it come from?

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.
