Kosher – A Definition

1 May

Here at Shaul’s we think it’s important to have a clear idea of what exactly Kosher is, especially if you are considering keeping Kosher  for the first time. Here it is:

Kosher foods are those that conform to the regulations of the Jewish Halakhic law framework, kosher meaning fit or allowed to be eaten. A list of some Kosher foods are found in the book of Leviticus. There are also certain Kosher rules found there. Reasons for food being non-kosher include the presence of ingredients derived from non-kosher animals or from kosher animals that were not properly slaughtered, a mixture of meat and milk, wine or grape juice (or their derivatives) produced without supervision, the use of produce from Israel that has not been tithed, or the use of non-kosher cooking utensils and machinery.

Please let us know if you have any questions and we’ll be happy to do our best to answer for you. If you need a great place to pick up Kosher food in the Washington DC metro area, you won’t find a better place (in our humble opinion) than Shaul’s Kosher Market located in Silver Spring, Maryland. Stop by today!
