"You Are What You Eat"

22 Menachem Av 5782
Erev Shabbat Kodesh
Parashat Ekev - Mevorchim 

"...not by bread alone does man live, rather by everything that emanates from the mouth of God does man live."  (Devarim 8.3)

That would include all the laws of kashrut.

The prohibition against eating insects is Min HaTorah (Biblical). If one eats an entire insect, even if it is less than a kezayis, he is punished with malkus (lashes). This applies to any insect that is visible to the naked eye. Insects that can only be seen under a microscope are not included in this prohibition.

The need to check fruits, vegetables, fish, and even water for insects is actually nothing new. The Gemara raises the issue in Maseches Chullin (67b) and the Shulchan Oruch devotes an entire siman (chapter) in Yoreh Dea’h (Si. 84) to it. The Pri Chadash actually writes: “I cannot contain myself from mentioning and making it known to the nation of Hashem regarding the severity of the prohibition of tolaim (insects). It has become light in the eyes of people and once a person becomes accustomed to a certain transgression it becomes ‘permissible’ in their eyes. Even the Chachomim are not careful enough in this matter.” (Source)

No doubt there will be plenty of "kosher" voices who will try to tell us there are all kinds of exceptions and help to pave the way for the "green revolution" in eating.  Be careful!  Everything on the WEF's agenda is part of their war against God and their desire to subjugate mankind.  

Follow the Divine Manufacturer's instructions and you won't go wrong.



  1. "Follow the Divine Manufacturer's instructions and you won't go wrong." Great point, and thanks so much!

    Shabbat mevarchin shalom umevorach!

  2. Shabbat Shalom/Chodesh Elul M'vorchim Tov!
    Are they selling this garbage already? I've read about what the amaleikim plan. Of course, this is a NO, NO in the Laws of Kashrut.
    That is why every Jew should start thinking of only eating chalav Yisrael dairy products.
    We pray for the Geulah Shleimah already - Hashem help us!

  3. Frank Zelenko (brother of Dr. Zelenko) and I recently spoke about this.


  4. This has been going around for a while and people would said that it is in the Bible, My response has been: The Stories of the Bible are when the locusts wiped out all the crops and the only thing you had to eat were the Locusts. There is the oral biblical law identifying which Locust you can eat which is kept today in Israel and the Middle East. The question of Food ingredients should be answered by a competent, qualified Kosher Supervisory Organization that has a chain of command that can direct questions to the Great Torah Scholars in Israel. such as Eda Charedith to name one.

  5. Nechamasarah sent the link to Keep Calm and Eat Ice Cream (kosher of course)!

    1. It was a cute idea but the picture that went with it was totally not tzanuah.

  6. Good grief, I saw a bunch of pictures of different dishes of ice cream. That is the name of her website. Sorry.
