It may seem like changing to a kosher home is daunting as this shift of lifestyle can be extreme. You might want to go 100% all in and is afraid to make mistakes. So we’re giving you ideas on how to keep a kosher home to make things just a tad bit easier for you.
Before we begin, we just want to say that you’re on the right path! Taking it slow and steady is very important on your journey to keeping kosher as Jewish rules can be a bit strict! But fear not; if you mess up, there’s always room for improvement.
Always look at it as a compromise. Imagine yourself as an adult learning a whole new language. Wouldn’t it make sense to learn the basics first before jumping to other challenges? There’s always a sense of compromise when you’re starting to learn something new. You could miss a certain rule by accident and not even know it. So going 100% kosher on your first month is possible, but leave some room for mistakes.
As you can see, we’re emphasizing on slow processes because mitzvah is pretty much the same thing!
As a compromise, you need to believe that eliminating bacon or cheeseburger is one step closer to a kosher lifestyle. So your journey always starts small, and you’ll continue to learn and grow!
As for mitzvah, this is one additional step: Torah is not all or nothing. Every mitzvah is a true relationship with the One Above. Every time we put on tefillin, every time we eat kosher, and every time we observe Shabbat, something tremendous happens.
The following are some ways to make your transition much easier.
