Op-ed on stem cell meat and Jewish Law from Haaretz

  1. There have been various opinions arguing that halacha has no problem with stem cell meat and would consider it kosher and non-meat. But I think eventually rabbis will probe the issue further, and will decide that the old standard principles should not apply to a new technique like cell growth. We are still waiting for such responses.... Synthetic foods such as soy cheese have not revolutionized kosher observance as much as one might have expected, but tofutti and soy delicious seem here to stay. Meatless franks seem to have a place in the supermarket so somebody must be buying them, but I don't think it is the kosher pizza shops looking to make substitute pepperoni
