Ask The Rabbi

Postby TVF wannabe » 31 Jul 2009, 14:42

Lately there have Been a bunch of questions for me in the Shoutbox re Judaism.

If you'd like feel free to ask any questions and I'll try to answer to the best of my ability.

Obviously this wont be the next Ask the mormon thread as I'm not Collingsworth shocking I know.

Food:kosher only.

We dont mix milk and meat. In fact after meat you cant eat milk products for 3, 5 or 6 hours depending on custom.
Meat:
Only animals that chew their cud and have split hooves are kosher.
I'm not exactly sure if there are parameters for fowl other then they can't be carnivorous. Chicken,Turkey and the like are kosher.
All meat must be slaughtered properly to be kosher.

Fish:Only fish with fins and scales are kosher.


*I'm not a Rabbi nor is what I say the only way it is. There are many different opinions and approaches even within orthodox.
That said I consider my self middle of the road orthodox and will answer the questions accordingly.

Thanks.

I'm not trying to bag on your religion (I'm equal opportunity, and this question could just as well go out to the fish fry people), but do you think that your spiritual leaders realize how retarded these food rules are? What purpose do they serve in 2009? Serving tradition for tradition's sake, especially when it affects your daily life so much, doesn't make sense to me. 3 hours? 5 hours? 6 hours? Does Yahweh give a shit if it's 4 hours or 14 hours? I just can't sign on with a micro-managerial deity.

Spiritual leader? That would be G-d.
Yes he cares, becuase he set them in place. Tradition is timeless.

ETA:I dont love my answer here i feel like it could be better, I'll get back to it.
the amount of time has to do with where you come from originally 3 hours are Germans(and the surrounding area)only.
5/6 are viewed as the same amount its just a question of into the sixth hour or 6 compete.
At that time the foods are no longer mixing and the taste is out of you mouth.
Second edit:

Thats the whole point of religion doing the tradition for their sake only because you believe in the religion.

Seriously? God came down from heaven and said "Wait 180 minutes to eat this, but 300 minutes to eat that!" - that's what you're telling me? That these aren't man's interpretation?

i dont know for shit, but it seems to be these rules came from a time when food safety knowledge didnt exist, and someone saw that eating dirty pigs and drinking spoilt milk made people sick and said 'god told me, "thall shall not eat thee!"'

Yes there are some interpertations, but they are in the application i.e. 3 or 6 as explained above.

This is a common misconception that the food laws were put in place by man as based on the times.

Thats the whole point of religion doing the tradition for their sake only because you believe in the religion.


(Pardon my intermittent ignorance and mixing up of facts, possibly)

So, does that mean that you still sacrifice a lamb and paint the top of your door with its blood for Passover? I'm gonna guess not.

Exactly my point. It's one thing to observe traditions for the sake of tradition. It's quite another to significantly (debate the usage of that word if you must) alter your life by stubbornly sticking to outdated ways of life. Hell, even the Catholic church modifies its stance on things every once in a while. It's called being relevant.

What's the real story then?

I dont, because we aren't supposed to.

There are certain things that have adjusted with the times but religion isnt (for everyone) about being relevant for the most part.
Also whats not relevant,not eating meat and milk?

They were set in place by g-d. Specifically what is and isnt kosher.

This is why Vince McMahon stays away from religion and politics. There's no changing someone's mind once they're set. It's a code that makes sense to me and which is why I'd rather have toothpicks through my nipples than debate either topic. But you kids look like you're off to a g--d start.

Someone let me know when Fletch's head explodes. My money's on Monday at the latest.

That's okay. As much as I enjoy the occasional chaotic shitstorm, religion and political debates are pointless, infinite, and eternally unappealing to me. But youse guys have fun...gency.

Sawbuck on TVFW continuing the tradition of not saying the Lord's name, which was originally unpronouncable and spelled YHWH in the Torah.
