Why don't Jewish people eat pork?


Answer by  rjn613 (100)

Observant Jews follow the laws of 'kashrut' (appropriate food). While these laws are vast and complex, their origin is in the Bible. The Torah limits the land animals that Jews are permitted to eat to those which both chew their cud and have cloven hooves (Leviticus 11:2). Since pigs do not chew their cud, their meat is forbidden.
