For 5000 years jews solved all the mysteries of the universe. Kabbala, thousands of books with explanation for everything, . . How come all these thousands of Rabbanim don't understand the code of Kosher and why? Reply

Great question. The truth is there's plenty of kabbalah on this topic... but after all said and done, although there may be reasons for it, it's not why we'll do this mitzvah, but rather because its a commandment from an infinite G-d, connecting us to that infinity.
The infinite bond with g-d is of most importance here (same for all mitzvot, furthermore by a Mitzvah that g-d didn't give a reason, how much more powerful is a connection not based beyond reason). Reply

If a cow is Kosher and milk which came from the same cow, Kosher as well. The milk touches the internal organs before it comes out from the cow, so why the milk in the bucket can't be mixed immediately with part of cow? What makes the different suddenly? Only because it is exposed to air? Reply

As long as the milk is in the animal, it is considered part of it. Once it is removed ("exposed to air" as you said, but it's not actually the air that causes it) it becomes its own entity. Reply

When the milk is in the cow, the cow is still alive. If the cow is milked, and then killed or its calf is killed, it isn't kind (or kosher) but cruel to cook the cow (or it's calf - since that is why it is giving milk) in it's own milk. These days it is unlikely to be the same cow, calf and milk because of the large herds, but in small farms it could easily have been the same. In addition, it evidently was a special culinary practice of the heathen neighbours to prepare such dishes. Judaism teaches kindness to animals and eating milk and meat together engenders callousness. Reply

Love it!
So comprehensive and at the same time so much fun to watch.
Sometimes the fun stuff are just a watered-down version of the real thing...
This is like an in-depth Torah class with such an enjoyable presentation - brilliant!
Thank you & please keep them coming! Reply
