Text message Ree

Parashat Ree (you shall see)

This section reviews the laws of kashrut.
We learn once again about the animals that are forbidden and those we can eat.
For animals that walk on four legs, we have two simultaneous conditions in order to be kosher. Same thing happens with fish.
But with birds, there are no special rules but rather a list of those that are permitted and those that are not. Why?
Birds are the only animals that can see the rest of the creatures from above.
Maybe the Torah is telling us that those who look at the rest from above will be, at some point, singled out.

In memory of my beloved mother and teacher Miriam Rachel bat Israel Itzchak Z"L
