HALAL FOOD IS NOT KOSHER

The word "halal" in Arabic means "permitted or lawful". Halal foods are foods that are allowed under Islamic dietary guidelines from the Qu’ran. The animals are slaughtered in the name of Allah.


Avoid eating pork!

Eating pork is prohibited in the Bible according to the Scriptures. Pig's bodies contain many toxins, worms and latent diseases. This could be because pigs like to scavenge and will eat any kind of food, including dead insects, worms, rotting carcasses, excreta (including their own), garbage, and other pigs. One in six people in the US and Canada has trichinosis from eating trichina worms, which are found in pork.

BEWARE OF "KOSHER  STYLE"

“Kosher style” is a misleading term that lures many Jews and non-Jews to believe that this is kosher. It usually refers to food that is NOT KOSHER. Some establishments, such as delicatessens, serve kosher style food. This usually means that they serve traditional Ashkenazi Jewish foods. When a restaurant or a delicatessen calls itself “kosher style”, the food is not actually kosher according to traditional Halachic standards. It can be deceptive for people who are looking for kosher food. A kosher establishment must comply with Jewish dietary laws, or kashrut. Kosher style establishments do not have kosher certifications and do not operate under any rabbinical supervision.

How to recognize kosher food

As you shop you have to look for kosher symbols placed on the packaging by Rabbinical Kosher authorities. There are literally hundreds of these symbols. Following are some of the major kosher certifications.

what makes meat kosher?

   

In Kitvei HaKodesh (Holy Scriptures), Bnei Yisrael (the children of Yisrael) were commanded to eat kosher food. While all the rest of the hagoyim (nations) ate and continue to eat non-kosher food, only Bnei Yisrael (the children of Yisrael) preserved the laws of kashrut throughout the centuries. Today mainly Jewish people eat kosher food.


Kosher slaughter, which is called Shechitah, is an extremely important command that the Jewish people have followed for generations. The shochet (slaughterer) is highly trained in the act of slaughter and all the specific laws that must be followed. These individuals must have high moral standards, integrity and devotion to Elohim of Yisrael. The Shechitah (kosher slaughter) must occur with the utmost level of respect for the animals. The shochet uses an extremely sharp knife. After saying a brocha (blessing), the shochet (slaughterer) uses a very fast, cutting motion to quickly sever the trachea, esophagus and major blood vessels in the neck. It is done this way to cause the animal a minimum amount of pain. It also ensures a quick drop of blood pressure to the brain and immediate loss of sensibility.


The kosher inspector (bodek) inspects the lungs and innards of kosher slaughtered animals for imperfections that might render the animal treif (non-kosher, literally “torn”) and therefore unfit for kosher consumption.


Animals with lungs that are free of perforations and major adhesions are ruled “glatt” kosher which literally means, smooth. There is another step of inspection of the organs that makes the meat kosher. In North America, only the front half of red meat animals are used for kosher consumption.


Then comes the process of soaking, salting and labeling. The Torah prohibits the consumption of the lifeblood of the animal, therefore all kosher meat and poultry undergo a special process of removing the blood. The meat or poultry is soaked in clean water for thirty minutes, then removed to drip dry. Then the meat is salted and left to hang for sixty minutes for further drainage of any remaining blood. After that, the meat is washed three times in cold, clean water to remove any remaining salt. After the final washing, the meat is dried, butchered into retail cuts, then packaged and sealed for safety and kashrut.


We strongly urge that not only ALL Jewish people, but Ephraimites (the lost ten tribes of Israel) will return to the Kosher laws of the Scriptures. You have to become a Biblical Jew with the circumcision of the heart (Brit Milah of halev) and obey ALL the mitzvot of Elohim of Israel.


Romans 2:29

“But a Yehudi (Jew) is he who is so inwardly, and circumcision is that of the heart, in Ruach HaKodesh, not literally, whose praise is not from man but from Elohim.”
