    • 4 Pages

    Often I am asked what makes me a religious Jew. Does being it mean keeping the laws of Kashrut? (Jewish dietary laws) Does it mean keeping the Sabbath and the holidays? WHAT DOES IT MEAN? Traditionally, we are taught that a ‘frum’ person is someone who keeps the Big 3: Shabbat, Kashrut, and Mikvah and if you’re single that you intend on following the laws of family purity upon marriage. I grew up in a Modern Orthodox, Zionistic home. My mother’s family has rabbis in our ancestry. My maternal grandmother has two ' grandfathers who were rabbis and her father was born in the Old City.

    A. Equipment Kosherization 1. I knew that there are various equipment regulations, but I was surprised by the countless and detailed regulations about food equipment, such as the use of pots, 24 hour rule, glass, recycling, and more. Among these, I was surprised by the how the use of pots rule is significantly strict. From this, since the rule requires the use of three different pots, I was wondering if most of Jewish families have at least three pots in their kitchen. 2. I was also surprised…

People may like one food, but not another; or maybe they have an allergy and cannot eat certain foods. It seems fair that the person with allergies is fed allergen free food, and the person who prefers one food over another should receive the preferred food when possible. Moreover, when someone cannot eat a specific food because of their religion, it makes sense that an alternative is offered.…

    In class I learned about how the Jews were the “chosen” people of God. They were a special group of people who lived in a very exclusive and close-knit community and learning about Kashrut has just restated the same idea. Eating is something that one does every day every week. Whenever they are eating food Jewish people are reminded by the Kashrut that they are the chosen people of God (My Jewish Learning “Kashrut 101”). Being Jewish makes one enter an exclusive group of people. Eating out at a…

    Hey Joshie, I have a few words for you and hope you read it. I am willing to put down a lot of money that you left Torah Judaism because you are mad at the institutions that are associated with it. You dont hate Shabbat or Kashrut, you dont hate Teffilin and Tzitzit, you are mad as hell at the "frum culture" that is rotten from the inside out. You hate the "chumra of the month club"; you hate the unneccesary barriers between men and women (outside of Tefilah); you hate the Shiduch system and…
