Kosher Quotations

I certainly don't live in a kosher home although I was raised in a kosher environment.

Zach Braff

What is it to keep kosher? Is it eating kosher potato chips? Kosher is a bigger idea. I think it's about being healthy. But according to some people, it's about not eating this food because it's forbidden by the Jewish law. My view of the halachah changed a little bit. The laws are there hopefully to be a tool.

I'm kosher except for times where I eat pork and shellfish.
Roseanne Barr
