Jewish Eating


"One of the most recurrent activities, and at times overwhelming activities, of any observant Jew is eating. The Torah places extreme emphasis upon all aspects of eating. The food itself and the manner in which it is eaten is microscopically scrutinized by the Torah and Chazal. In Kabbalistic and Chassidic schools of thought, achilah b'kedushah (consecrated consumption) plays an extremely important role in one's service of HaShem."

(R' Binyomin Forst, Laws of Kashrus, Overview)

Have a great day,
