Mysticism & Kashrut
Many kashrut issues revolve around mystical concepts in the rules of kosher eating rather than prohibitions of the Torah. In this series with Rabbi Dovid Fink we will aim to understand the relationship between mystical or spiritual on the one hand and halachic violation on the other. In the first half of this course we will cover the following topics: Leaving Water Uncovered over Night, Mixing Fish and Meat, Mixing Fish and Milk, Peeled Onions, Garlic, and Eggs Left Uncovered over Night, Eating Organs: Heart, Brains, and Liver. In the second half of the course we will discuss: What do we do when kabbalistic and halachic sources contradict each other?
