“Pork Prohibition” Law in Israel

The Pork Prohibition Law was accepted by the Israeli K’neset back in 1962. It is a Jewish religious national law, prohibiting the cultivation and slaughter of pigs for food. It does exclude non-Jewish regions, such as Arab Christian towns, zoos and research.

This law relates to pigs only and does not expand to other non-kosher animals, although the Halakha does not make that distinction. There is no explanation in the bill for that, and it is accepted as a symbolic act. The reason is back in Jewish history in exile, as enforcing pigs on Jews as an act of conversion is in the Jewish collective memory as a symbol of Christian prosecutions.The motivation behind this legislation is related to the relations and struggles between orthodox and secular Jews in Israel. It’s a delicate balance, which is periodically interrupted by large immigration waves and the evolvement of a secular Israeli culture, diversified from compromising to rebelling religion.

    I have tried to explain this to my kids,adding the comment that no one seemed to have forced Jews to eat lobster.I would then segue onto the interesting factoid that there were revolts by indentured servants in the Massachusetts colony regarding being forced to consume lobster on multiple days of the week,in the early days of the colony.The kids would then roll their eyes usually.
