A Culture of Kashrut

By Morris J. Allen

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), September 2009

The author argues that observant Jews ought to care just as much about the ethics of food production (ethical kashrut) as about the ritual (traditional) kashrut. He outlines the efforts of the Hekhsher Tzedek commission to create standards for ethical kashrut, in an effort to foster awareness and commitment regarding these principles among the Jewish public.
