Feasting and Fasting

This chapter focuses on how the six modern Jewish global migrations influenced Jewish cuisines in Europe, the Middle East, and the United States. It explains the effect of political modernization on Jewish religious life and surveys how this affected the creation of religious denominations and the different role of the dietary laws in each denomination. The construction of modern kosher certification and Jewish food activism—“Jewish food ethics”—are described as a consequence of industrialized and globalized food production.

Keywords:   Jewish, migrations, Europe, Middle East, United States, modernization, dietary laws, food activism, ethics, industrialized
