Keeping Kosher

The word kosher is used in many ways. It has become slang for “alright” or “approved.” It is part of the label on certain types of pickles. And it is usually associated with Jews. But so few people really know what kosher is and how it connects to Scripture. Sondra Oster Baras, an Orthodox Jew

the community of Telem is surrounded by hostile Arab villages, in particular the growing town of Tarkumiyeh. The land surrounding the community is in Area C, an area legally under exclusive Israeli control. The land is public land, none of it owned by any private individual, Arab or Jew. And, by law, in order to build or develop anything on this land, Israeli government permission is required. While the people of Telem are careful law-abiding citizens and only build new homes and public buildings after receiving government authorization, the Arabs in the area are blatantly defying government regulations and developing this public land.
