Jews are not allowed to consume any Blood


Until today, various Christians still follow the medieval anti - Semitic ideas of the church. For instance that Jews would kill Christian children in order to use their blood for the Mazzot baking before Pessach. As a matter of fact, the Torah prohibits any blood consumption and the Jews have been keeping those laws for thousands of years. Sources may be found in the Book of Leviticus (Sefer Vayikra) 3:17; 7:26; 7:27; 17:12; and further.

Those of you who know the Kashrut regulations are very much aware of the Halacha of not consuming any blood. Just look how carefully Jews kasher their meat by using special salt before consumption. These particular Kashrut laws as well the the laws for the Shechitah (ritual slaughter) are extremely complex and it is not easy to study them.


  1. It is permited by the Halachah to eat blood from a fish, provided that there is a visible sign (the scales of the fish) which indicate that this is blodd from a fish.

    But practicaly speaking, I don't know a single Jew who will eat it, because it's disgusting.

  2. B"H

    It is and wouldn't eat it either.:-)
