    Eat only celery! Just kidding. Like that’s an option. People who give that kind of advice clearly could never be good in bed.

    We warm-blooded people are all going to eat a lot…as this is a time to relax, be with loved ones and stuff our happy faces.

    My favorite vegan food in Los Angeles these days comes from a small, crowded restaurant on Melrose with a giant skewer of animal flesh rotating in the window.

    By Rabbi Dr. Shmuly Yanklowitz

    June 24, 2012 | 1:29 am

    Could we create vegan tefillin? By vegan tefillin, I do not, of course, mean tefillin made from corn. That would not fulfill the holy mitzvah. But could we ensure that our Jewish ritual objects, which must come from animals, are obtained in a cruelty-free manner?

    Tefillin is a very...

  • Food Rules

    By Rob Eshman

    June 22, 2010 | 5:23 pm

    Among the major gifts of the Jews to humanity — the idea of one God, the Bible and Ten Commandments, individual rights and human equality — there is also this: finicky eating.
