The Mediterrean Diet: Is It Kosher Diet? I enjoyed this talk very much and yes I have been enlightened about the why and what Kosher is..David Mitchell posted on 23rd Jan2012 about howhard it is for him to keep this Kosher Diet in Nashville...I am a non-Jew but have been drawn in here for some time and am partner with Chabad.and take ALL seriously..I now know that part of Kosher is 'The Law' which I accept..the remainder was interesting to me too..so I wondered if the Mediterranean one was similar...will check this out though..thanks..I understnad now..

Kosher Meat and Fish I have been told by a Chassidic Rabbi that we are not allowed to consume the flesh of predators or scavengers as they pollute the soul. What is your opinion of this? Reply

in response to Susan:

In the Torah, while talking about Kashrut laws and birds, the Torah does not give any signs of what birds are unkosher. All it states is a list of birds we cannot eat. Most of them are predators or scavengers, so most Jews do not eat any. Reply

Mediterranean Diet Not very familiar with the diet. As long as the foods eaten are in the parameters of what is discussed in the lecture, you should be on the right track.

Click here for the contact info for the Chabad rabbi in Nashville, and I'm sure he would be happy to assist you in obtaining more kosher food. Reply

The Mediterrean Diet: Is it a Kosher Diet? Shalom! My name is David. I live in Nashville, Tennessee. It is very hard to eat kosher here. I am on the Meditterean Diet. This diet has many kosher foods associated with it. Is this a kosher diet? Reply
