Kashrut law is probably one of the defining traits of Jewish life, as one can't argue with the central role of food in our tradition. But are the laws we received at mount Sinai adequate for keeping a healthy diet physically and spiritually; as an individual and as a society.

In Jewish tradition before consuming the culinary item, we say a blessing acknowledging the agricultural source of food. For those who are ready to peel a bit deeper, a complexity of socio-economical hierarchies may be revealed.

These leaders are developing the idea of kashrut beyond the traditional examination of the food itself, inspecting where it comes from, who’s serving it and how are those people treated. While many will argue this is not what Kosher is all about, we challenge them to find a better word for it.
