Kashrut (also kashruth or kashrus, כַּשְׁרוּת) is the set of Hebrew dietary laws. Food that may be consumed according to halakha (Hebrew law) is termed kosher in English, from the Ashkenazi pronunciation of the Hebrew term kashér (כָּשֵׁר), meaning “fit” (in this context, fit for consumption). Food that is not in accordance with Hebrew law is called treif (Yiddish: טרײף or treyf, derived from Hebrew טְרֵפָה trēfáh). Kosher can also refer to anything that is fit for use or correct according to halakha or a sukkah (a Sukkot booth). The word kosher has become English vernacular, a colloquialism meaning proper, legitimate, genuine, fair, or acceptable.
Among the numerous laws that form part of kashrut are the prohibitions on the consumption of unclean animals (such as pork, shellfish (both Mollusca and Crustacea), mixtures of meat and milk, and the commandment to slaughter mammals and birds according to a process known as shechita. Most of the basic laws of kashrut are derived from the Torah’s Books of Leviticus and Deuteronomy.
Although the details of kashrut are extensive, the laws all derive from a few fairly simple, straightforward rules:
- Certain animals may not be eaten at all. This restriction includes the flesh, organs, eggs and milk of the forbidden animals.
- Of the animals that may be eaten, the birds and mammals must be killed in accordance with Hebrew law.
- All blood must be drained from meat and poultry or broiled out of it before it is eaten.
- Certain parts of permitted animals may not be eaten.
- Fruits and vegetables are permitted, but must be inspected for bugs (which cannot be eaten)
- Meat (the flesh of birds and mammals) cannot be eaten with dairy. Fish, eggs, fruits, vegetables and grains can be eaten with either meat or dairy. (According to some views, fish may not be eaten with meat).
- Utensils (including pots and pans and other cooking surfaces) that have come into contact with meat may not be used with dairy, and vice versa. Utensils that have come into contact with non-kosher food may not be used with kosher food. This applies only where the contact occurred while the food was hot.
Animals That May Not Be Eaten:
- Of the “beasts of the earth” (which basically refers to land mammals with the exception of swarming rodents), you may eat any animal that has cloven hooves and chews its cud. Lev. 11:3; Deut. 14:6. Any land mammal that does not have both of these qualities is forbidden. The Torah specifies that the camel, the rock badger, the hare and the pig are not kosher because each lacks one of these two qualifications. Cattle, sheep, goats, deer and bison are kosher.
- Of the things that are in the waters, you may eat anything that has fins and scales. Lev. 11:9; Deut. 14:9. Thus, shellfish such as lobsters, oysters, shrimp, clams and crabs are all forbidden. Fish like tuna, carp, salmon and herring are all permitted. Here is a link to see all the kosher fishes that one can eat – Kosher Fish List
- For birds, the criteria is less clear. The Torah provides a list of forbidden birds (Lev. 11:13-19; Deut. 14:11-18), but does not specify why these particular birds are forbidden. All of the birds on the list are birds of prey or scavengers, thus the rabbis inferred that this was the basis for the distinction. Other birds are permitted, such as chicken, geese, ducks and turkeys. However, some people avoid turkey, because it is was unknown at the time of the giving of the Torah, leaving room for doubt.
- Rodents, reptiles, amphibians, and insects (except as mentioned above) are all forbidden. Lev. 11:29-30, 42-43.
- The mammals and birds that may be eaten must be slaughtered in accordance with Hebrew law. (Deut. 12:21). We may not eat animals that died of natural causes (Deut. 14:21) or that were killed by other animals. In addition, the animal must have no disease or flaws in the organs at the time of slaughter. These restrictions do not apply to fish; only to the flocks and herds (Num. 11:22).
Draining Of Blood:
- The Torah prohibits consumption of blood. Lev. 7:26-27; Lev. 17:10-14. This is the only dietary law that has a reason specified in Torah: we do not eat blood because the life of the animal (literally, the soul of the animal) is contained in the blood. This applies only to the blood of birds and mammals, not to fish blood. Thus, it is necessary to remove all blood from the flesh of kosher animals.
- The remaining blood must be removed, either by broiling or soaking and salting. Liver may only be kashered by the broiling method, because it has so much blood in it and such complex blood vessels. This final process must be completed within 72 hours after slaughter, and before the meat is frozen or ground. Most butchers and all frozen food vendors take care of the soaking and salting for you, but you should always check this when you are buying someplace you are unfamiliar with.
Forbidden Fats and Nerves:
- The sciatic nerve and its adjoining blood vessels may not be eaten. The process of removing this nerve is time consuming and not cost-effective, so most American kosher slaughterers simply sell the hind quarters to non-kosher butchers.
- A certain kind of fat, known as chelev, which surrounds the vital organs and the liver, may not be eaten. Kosher butchers remove this. Modern scientists have found biochemical differences between this type of fat and the permissible fat around the muscles and under the skin.
Fruits and Vegetables:
- All fruits and vegetables are kosher (but see the note regarding Grape Products below). However, bugs and worms that may be found in some fruits and vegetables are not kosher. Fruits and vegetables that are prone to this sort of thing should be inspected to ensure that they contain no bugs. Leafy vegetables like lettuce and herbs and flowery vegetables like broccoli and cauliflower are particularly prone to bugs and should be inspected carefully. Strawberries and raspberries can also be problematic.
Separation of Meat and Dairy:
- On three separate occasions, the Torah tells us not to “boil a kid in its mother’s milk.” (Ex. 23:19; Ex. 34:26; Deut. 14:21). The Oral Torah explains that this passage prohibits eating meat and dairy together. The rabbis extended this prohibition to include not eating milk and poultry together. In addition, the Talmud prohibits cooking meat and fish together or serving them on the same plates, because it is considered to be unhealthy. It is, however, permissible to eat fish and dairy together, and it is quite common (lox and cream cheese, for example). It is also permissible to eat dairy and eggs together.
- This separation includes not only the foods themselves, but the utensils, pots and pans with which they are cooked, the plates and flatware from which they are eaten, the dishwashers or dishpans in which they are cleaned, the sponges with which they are cleaned and the towels with which they are dried. A kosher household will have at least two sets of pots, pans and dishes: one for meat and one for dairy.
- One must wait a significant amount of time between eating meat and dairy. Opinions differ, and vary from three to six hours after meat. This is because fatty residues and meat particles tend to cling to the mouth. From dairy to meat, however, one need only rinse one’s mouth and eat a neutral solid like bread, unless the dairy product in question is also of a type that tends to stick in the mouth.
- Utensils (pots, pans, plates, flatware, etc., etc.) must also be kosher. A utensil picks up the kosher “status” (meat, dairy, pareve, or treif) of the food that is cooked in it or eaten off of it, and transmits that status back to the next food that is cooked in it or eaten off of it. Thus, if you cook chicken soup in a saucepan, the pan becomes meat. If you thereafter use the same saucepan to heat up some warm milk, the fleishik status of the pan is transmitted to the milk, and the milchik status of the milk is transmitted to the pan, making both the pan and the milk a forbidden mixture.
- Kosher status can be transmitted from the food to the utensil or from the utensil to the food only in the presence of heat, (including hot spices) or prolonged contact, thus if you are eating cold food in a non-kosher establishment, the condition of the plates is not an issue. I knew an Orthodox rabbi who would eat ice cream at Friendly’s, for example, because the ice cream was kosher and the utensils are irrelevant for such cold food. Likewise, you could use the same knife to slice cold cuts and cheese, as long as you clean it in between, but this is not really a recommended procedure, because it increases the likelihood of mistakes.
- Stove tops and sinks routinely become non-kosher utensils, because they routinely come in contact with both meat and dairy in the presence of heat. It is necessary, therefore, to use dishpans when cleaning dishes (don’t soak them directly in the sink) and to use separate spoon rests and trivets when putting things down on the stove top.
- Dishwashers are a kashrut problem. If you are going to use a dishwasher for both meat and dairy in a kosher home, you either need to have separate dish racks or you need to run the dishwasher in between meat and dairy loads.
Changing or adjusting any diet takes time, patience and re-education. Red blood cells have a life of 120 days or 3 months. So it will take about one full season to get a reset in your diet change and see great results. Doing a slow transition and replacements is recommended. Also doing some for of exercise, fitness, running, jogging, yoga, etc is also great to do. Learning breathing exercises also, known as pranayama can be looked into. When we breath in we balance the body, when we breath out we balance the brain, lengthening your breath and breathing through your nose will improve stamina and mental, physical and spiritual abilities. Most of the information concerning the dietary laws is coming from two websites as references that site the Bible and Torah and the ancient Hebrew dietary laws in them.

For those who wish to “personally” take their diet (eating and drinking habits) a few steps further, you can research what is known as “Alkaline Diet”. The whole bases of an Alkaline diet is that the human body has a particular pH and ORP that it must maintain. pH stands for Potential of Hydrogen. That is how alkalinity and acidity is measured. The pH scale goes from 0 to 14, 7 pH is the middle, green or neutral zone. The blood in the human body needs to be at an average of 7.365 pH. Anything lower than that then its easy for toxins, effects of chemtrails, pollution, worms, fungus, bacteria, excessive mucus and parasites to live and multiply inside of your body. This is caused by social, learned and adaptive acidic eating and drinking habits. The remedy for this is Alkaline Foods complimented by Alkaline Juices and definitely Alkaline water. The reason why many people eat fruits and vegetables to get better when they are sick is because fruits and vegetables have high Alkaline levels for healing. If your blood’s pH stays at 7.365 pH or higher, its impossible for any sickness, illness, dis-ease, cancer to survive in an Alkaline body. At that rate, the cells, bones, muscles, organs, brain, immune system, nervous system is functioning the way it’s suppose to without any decay or drainage of energy. pH is checked by either using pH strips of pH drops.
ORP stands for Oxidation Reduction Potential. ORP measures the electricity in the liquid substance. ORP is measured by an ORP device that measures readings with either a Positive (+) number or with a Negative (-) number in millivolts (mV). The Negative number is what we are concern with. For “example”, most bottled water, reverse osmosis water, distilled water and tap water measure between +200 to +400 ORP. That is bad, that means those liquids if consumed will lower the blood pH drastically. If that is done over a long period of time then what is known as acidosis will occur. Basically your body starts to shut done, start feeding on itself for the nutrient its lacking, also sickness and dehydration occur. When you have high ORP water, then the reading will be in Negative (-) range which means it is conducting bio-electrical-magnetic energy which is anti-aging and helps to repair the cells, DNA, polarity of the blood cells so they don’t stack up on one another like coins.
Maintaining an Alkaline diet or an Alkaline based diet will keep your pH up and your ORP levels up. Our bodies generate bio-electrical-magnetic energy, so we would need bio-electrical-magnetic food to maintain it and to be sick free. This is done through an Alkaline diet. An Alkaline diet is the big umbrella for a Vegetarian, Vegan, Raw Food (sun cooked food, nothing steamed above 115 degrees), Fruitarian, Plant Base diet. A Vegetarian by definition only eats vegetables and drinks vegetable juices and does not consume dairy or meat. A Vegan by definition only eats fruits, vegetables and plant base foods and does not consume dairy or meat. A Fruitarian only eats fruits and consume fruit juices and does not consume dairy or meat. A Raw Foodist by definition does not believe in cooking their foods because the sun has already cook it, eats fruits, vegetables, greens and does not consume dairy or meat. The sun heats up the fruits, vegetables and plants at a 115 degrees, so that is why steaming is allowed, but not above that. Plant Base diet consists of having greens as the main foundation of your meals and no consumption of dairy or meats. This type of diet, Alkaline diet, represents that fruits, vegetables and greens are the same colors of the chakras for a reason. Which means that this type of food is basically “trapped light”; full of information from the Sun, Moons, Stars, Constellation, and Mother Earth/Nature, etc.
As stated before, to go into a full Alkaline Diet is a “personal” choice that the Moor/Moabitess would take upon themselves to get into after abiding by the Hebrew kosher dietary laws which is our foundation for Students, Members and Citizens of:

For study of this area there are many “The Complete Idiot’s Guide” books, many “for Dummies” books and healthy cook books that will educate you and take you from the start to end on how to maintain a Vegan, Vegetarian, Raw Food, Plant Base diet. Those who wish to hear audio or video, research a brother known as Dr. Sebi on Youtube. Another suggestion is that every house hold have “African Holistic Health” by Llaila O. Africa (For the book – African Holistic Health). It is basically a small encyclopedia that has recommendation of herbs, spices, seasonings, etc for common illnesses and sickness along with pictures and educational information. Nutrition is the science of food and what food is right for our blood, cells, organs, digestive system, nervous system, immune system, bones, muscles and brain so that we are not plagued by health problems into old age. As a nation and government we have a lot of work to do, it does not make sense if we are a nation and government of sick people. The Moabite/Moabitess set the highest standard for humanity. We must show that by not having any breakage or clog in our mental, physical and spiritual, more light is able to be contained, emanated and drawn in to show that we are the angels of light we say we are. You are what you eat will ring volumes as your diet changes for the better.
