The international media is currently rife with news about the Israeli bombardment of Gaza with artillery, escalating the conflict that has already brought airstrikes, rocket attacks, Jewish-Arab intercommunal violence, deaths of innocent civilians, and, above all, misery for Palestinians.
Both the Jews and Muslims seem to disagree on countless issues. However, there is at least one thing that could provide a common ground for the adherents of the two religions. Both Halal and Kosher foods “are based on laws and interpretative rules that are derived from our respective sacred texts and apply to any food we consume. There are similarities in how the systems work and even overlap in the restrictions”.
Today, we would like to share an interesting article that discusses similarities as well as differences between Halal and Kosher foods and their certification processes. We hope you will enjoy reading it as much as we did.
