All questions of Kosher and Kashrut must be directed to a reliable Rabbi

Jewish Kosher Cooking - Jewish Cooking  Click here for the Kosher Symbols - The Hebrew word kosher means fit or proper as it relates to dietary (kosher) laws. It means that a given product is permitted and acceptable.  The sources for the laws of kashruth are of Biblical origin and expounded in Rabbinic legislation, through which the Rabbis interpreted, or added preventative measures to the Biblical regulations. These laws are codified in the Shulchan Aruch (Code of Jewish Law), and are discussed in the ancient, medieval, and contemporary writings of the Rabbis. The laws of kashruth are complex and extensive. The intention of this guide is to acquaint the reader with some of the fundamentals of kashruth and provide an insight into their practical application. Given the complex nature of the laws of kashruth, one should consult an Orthodox Rabbi when a question involving kashruth arises. Though an ancillary hygienic benefit has been attributed to the observance of kashruth, their ultimate purpose and rationale is simply to conform to the Divine Will as expressed in the Torah.If you see any of the symbols that are represented, it means "the food has been inspected by one of the many kosher certifying agencies in the United States. Each agency identifies itself by its own unique symbol."

Kosher

Not Kosher

Eggs from kosher animals are koshers

Eggs from non-kosher birds are also non-kosher
Eggs from kosher animals with blood spots are not kosher.

Hogs and pigs do not chew their cuds and are therefore not Kosher.

A kosher inspection starts while the animals are still alive and continues until the finished product leaves the plant. This system operates under the diligent and watchful supervision of kosher inspectors, who stringently control the process from the time the meat is slaughtered until it is shipped.

  • Kosher: Cattle, Sheep, Goats, and Deer.
  • Non-Kosher: Horses, Donkeys, Camels and Pigs.

Kosher Slaughter (Shechitah)

This is where additional costs come in. The slaughter is performed by a "shochet"
(a man of skill, piety and expertise). Make sure that:

1. Neck area is clean
2. Severing of the trachea and esophagus
3. Cut is within the proper area
4. No hesitation
5. No pressing
6. No tearing
