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 who has devoted her life to reaching out to Christians all over the world to bless Israel, explains the Jewish concept of Kosher, complete with Biblical and modern practical explanations. And Kimberly Troup, Christian Zionist director of CFOIC Heartland’s US office, and Tommy Waller, Christian Zionist director of HaYovel, share Christian perceptions and misperceptions of kosher. A key to understanding the practical ins and outs of Jewish-Christian friendships!
