What is the real meaning of Kosher? How can food be labeled Kosher when the animal was abused, raped, and had its babies kidnapped before slaughter or producing commercial milk?
Rabbis say Jewish law doesn’t permit crimes of atrocities; so even if there’s a “kosher” way to slaughter an animal, how can it be kosher certified when the entire process of raising the animal to slaughter and stealing its babies is not kosher? Rabbis say those that interpret the law otherwise don’t understand the real meaning and spirit of Judaic law.
Could it be that the only real kosher label is a certified vegan trademark? Or, at the very least, a “cruelty-free” trademark signifying the meat was lab-grown and therefore kind? While BeVeg International executives believe salivating for flesh of any kind does not further a movement of kindness and compassion, there is something to be said about eating food that never suffered.
