Question
If I need to separate into different sinks and dish washers between milk and meat, why would I not have to separate washing machines? Meaning, if I have a tablecloth that had spilled a meat dish on it, and I go and wash it, and then a day later I have a tablecloth with milk spilled on it and I come to wash it, is this not the same thing as the sink/dish washer? How do we paskin between the sink/dish washer and the clothes washing machine?

Question
It seems strange that we have to go through unusual measures to search for bugs in our fruits and vegetables. Some fruits/vegetables are not permitted at all, some we can only eat if an expert examined them and certified them kosher, and others I can eat if I use a thrip cloth, light box, etc. Is this something new? (Did the Rambam eat fruits and vegetables? He didn't own a light box.) Or have some groups within the Jewish community taken this to an extreme level and these restrictions are not totally necessary? Thank you.

Why must the meat and fish be separated? Asker B* wrote: Could you please explain the prohibition of eating fish and cheese together? I would like to know where this law/custom is derived from as I have been told that it is a Chassidic custom. Also, if it is a Chassidic custom and, seeing as though I'm not Chassidic, even if I have been observing this custom for many years under the impression that it was mandatory, do I still have to continue with it? Thanks!

Why is only half the cow kosher? Is it because of the Temple sacrifice?

Question
Shalom! I'm Andrew. Studying in detail the Genesis creation and history of mankind. My aim is to establish that the eating of clean animals (i.e. kosher) and avoiding unclean was established after the flood, and not for the first time at Mt Sinai after the Exodus. Some Christians use Gen 9:3 (Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you..KJV) to say that swine was only a rule for Israel, because it was only given to them at Sinai. I don't believe this. I first use Leviticus 18:27 to establish that when God uses the word "abomination" it means that it always was and always will be, because God does not change (Malachi 3:6). Therefore when in Leviticus 11 God pronounces the eating of unclean flesh an abomination, it means it always was. Now then Genesis 7:2, speaking of the 7 clean beasts on the Ark, would suggest to me that Noah knew of God's eating plan and the abomination of unclean flesh, and so Genesis 9:3 would not include the unclean animals. Am I on the right track? Or would you add or change my study on this? Thank you,  

Question
In Exodus 23:19, Exodus 34:26 and Deuteronomy 14:21 States: " Do not cook a young goat in its mother's milk." What is the explicit reason for this instruction of not cooking a goat this way and given as a command when G-d gives it THREE times? Thank you for the research...I hit a dead end in mine.
