Unique “Halakhic Dinner” Wrap Up

Last night, a room of a couple hundred Jews from around the NY area enjoyed a meal of learning and unique kosher foods which included animal intestines, hearts, brains, testicles, livers, sweetbreads, foie gras, quail eggs, tongues, goat, bison, squab, ox-tail and locusts.
Rabbi Meir Soloveitchik from the Spanish Portuguese Synagogue on the Upper West Side of Manhattan hosted and educated the room on the various halachot of the animals we were eating. Sources were provided in an educational and fun way (unless you were from New Jersey) adding to an already great experience.

The meal was tasty and adventurous to say the least. Here’s a selection of the dishes we enjoyed last night. Oh, and if you’re wondering if I ate the locusts (scroll down)…
