This week’s parsha references the laws of kashrut. For me and our family, being kosher in 2018 means being Eco-kosher. The following suggestions are from the Reform Movement’s “10 minutes of Torah” with words by Rabbi David A. Lyon:
- Shop local! Find a farmer’s market in your neighborhood. Talk to your local supermarket managers about the food they stock.
- Make new conscious eating choices, such as moderation over excess, and more sustainable and eco-conscious
- Choose foods and quantities that reflect your concern for the environment, justice, health, and so on.
- Revisit your synagogue food policy.
