To all my Heebs in the Hood

It looks like the guys from JibJab have released another music video but this time it's not political. It is however unique since I seriously doubt there are many raps devoted to Matzah. It's too bad I didn't find this a couple days ago when I was rambling on about the passover diet but better late than never I guess.


Anyone else know that there's actually an online JewFAQ? Handy thing. I found it while trying to answer someone else's question by chicken and dairy is no good when chickens don't produce milk. Anyway, it's a pretty spiffy site. Eating kosher sounds like a major pain in the ass though.

General Rules

Although the details of kashrut are extensive, the laws all derive from a few fairly simple, straightforward rules:

Certain animals may not be eaten at all. This restriction includes the flesh, organs, eggs and milk of the forbidden animals.

Of the animals that may be eaten, the birds and mammals must be killed in accordance with Jewish law.

All blood must be drained from the meat or broiled out of it before it is eaten.

Certain parts of permitted animals may not be eaten.

Meat (the flesh of birds and mammals) cannot be eaten with dairy. Fish, eggs, fruits, vegetables and grains can be eaten with either meat or dairy. (According to some views, fish may not be eaten with meat).

Utensils that have come into contact with meat may not be used with dairy, and vice versa. Utensils that have come into contact with non-kosher food may not be used with kosher food. This applies only where the contact occurred while the food was hot.

Grape products made by non-Jews may not be eaten.
