You Are What You Eat

The food a person eats transforms into his very flesh and blood. One’s character is therefore shaped by what he allows into his mouth. Consuming the meat of a predatory animal, for example, ingrains the trait of cruelty into one’s chemical makeup.
Kosher, Lubavitcher Rebbe
You Are What You Eat
Disc 101, Program 402

Event Date: 16 Tammuz 5735 - June 25, 1975

The food a person eats transforms into his very flesh and blood. One’s character is therefore shaped by what he allows into his mouth. Consuming the meat of a predatory animal, for example, ingrains the trait of cruelty into one’s chemical makeup. This tampers not only with his emotional instincts, but also with his intellectual faculties, clouding his ability to properly comprehend G-dly wisdom.

A fund has been created to assist fellow Jews to take on the mitzvah of keeping kosher. This fund, which is entirely discreet, and is available to all Jews, will cover fifty percent of the expenses involved in making your kitchen kosher, as you set out on the path of a healthy, kosher home.
