1. Many modern Jews think that the laws of kashrutare simply primitive health regulations that have become obsolete with modern methods of food preparation. There is no question that some of the dietary laws have beneficial health effects. For example, the laws regarding kosher slaughter are so sanitary that kosher butchers and slaughterhouses are often exempted from USDA regulations. However, health is not the main reason for Jewish dietary laws and in fact many of the laws of kashrut have no known connection with health. To the best of our modern scientific knowledge, there is no reason why camel or rabbit meat (both treif) is any less healthy than cow or goat meat. In addition, some of the health benefits derived from kashrutwere not made obsolete by the refrigerator. For example, there is some evidence that eating meat and dairy together interferes with digestion, and no modern food preparation technique reproduces the health benefit of the kosher law of eating them separately. The...

1. Jewish law tries to separate Jews from gentiles, in order to prevent Jews from adopting idolatrous behaviors. Extensions of the dietary laws limited social interactions. Jews are not allowed to leave their wine with idolaters, lest it be used for idolatry (Shulhan Arukh Yoreh Deah 128:1), and food cooked by non-Jews is also prohibited (Yoreh Deah 113:1ff.). There are exceptions and loopholes, but the general force is to discourage interaction between Jews and non-Jews. These laws had serious ramifications in the Middle Ages, when most authorities considered the Christian belief in the Trinity as idolatrous. The Mishnah Pronounced: MISH-nuh, Origin: Hebrew, code of Jewish law compiled in the first centuries of the Common Era. Together with the Gemara, it makes up the Talmud. prohibits any commerce with idolaters prior to their holidays (Mishnah Avodah Zarah 1:1), whichfor Christians is every Sunday. Jews were also prohibited from engaging in partnerships with idolaters, lest the idol...

1. Jewish philosophers are struck by a peculiar enigma. On one hand, God provides for the needs of all humanity. In fact, the Talmud teaches that a person's income for the entire year is determined on Rosh Hashana.3In other words, we cannot increase our earnings and profits beyond the predestined decree. On the other hand, the Torah exhorts us to pursue a reasonable livelihood by making whatever effort necessary, even though it is not our efforts that will provide the returns. So as hard as a person toils, he must firmly believe that it is God who is controlling his finances. Exercising this pursuit is a part of the spiritual growth process.4 Now we can understand why it is so futile to pursue any form of forbidden business activity. If all of one's income is provided by God, He certainly won't give you more if you cheat or take advantage of others. Even in a society where others may be applying unfair business practices, we must withstand the inclination to do likewise. When we live u...

1. Hitler was appointed chancellor of Germany in January 1933. In elections in March, the NSDAP further increased its numbers in the Reichstag, Germany’s legislature, further emboldening the Nazis. It did not take long for Hitler and his party to take action against Germany’s Jewish population. On April 1st 1933, just weeks after Hitler’s appointment as chancellor, the Sturmabteilung(SA) initiated a campaign to encourage boycotts of Jewish-owned businesses. Across Germany, small Jewish stores were daubed with Stars of David or painted with slogans like Kauf nicht bei Juden(‘Don’t buy from Jews’). SA troopers lingered menacingly outside larger businesses owned by Jews, including department stores, cinemas or banks. There were several instances of Jews being assaulted or property being destroyed. These boycotts were reported as being the work of the SA rather than the Nazi government; nevertheless, the government did little to halt or restrain it.
