Kashrut and Purity


If a Jew eats any unclean animal or any foods forbidden in Torah for a Jew to eat, does it make the person who eats it ritually impure or unclean?



  1. No, it does not mean that nowadays. What it does mean is that the person needs to go through a process of Teshuvah – atonement and repentance – for what they did. But they are not considered to be ritually impure or unclean.
