Resource Guide 2018-2019: Food


The rules regarding what foods are proper to eat originate in the Bible. The Israelites were given a long list of forbidden foods, including animals that didn’t both chew their cud and have split hooves, rodents, birds of prey, shellfish and fish without fins and scales. Exodus added the restriction: “You shall not boil a kid in its mother’s milk.”

The evolution of Jewish dietary laws evolved from there as Talmudic rabbis strove to ensure the mandate was upheld giving rise to the separation of milk and meat. Jewish concerns extend to how food is slaughtered, prepared and served. For an animal to be kosher, or fit for consumption, it must be killed in a prescribed way – the swiftest, most painless and humane death for an animal. Although kosher laws have their origin in the Bible, with modern food production concerns, kosher is considered the gold standard by many consumers looking to verify the safety and purity of the food they eat.

Arizona Jewish Life does not guarantee the kashrut of any merchandise in these listings. Please check with the store or restaurant to be sure it meets your kashrut requirements. Although not listed here, many chain grocery stores in Arizona have sections devoted to kosher items.
