Does a Rabbi always bless kosher foods?
I eat kosher food. It’s prepared under Rabbinic authority along with a Rabbi ensures it meets the needs of the kosher diet.
There’s much more to eating kosher than simply a Rabbi’s blessing and actually there is no requirement for a Rabbi to bless food to make it kosher. Actually, Rabbi’s don’t bless food.
The individual on the point of take in the food will offer you a blessing before and frequently once they eat.
The items we buy at the shop have a hechsher or perhaps a symbol that shows these to be kosher.
They are such things as canned items, packed mixes, frozen meals etc, things like Coke and Sprite don’t have a hechsher but we all know they’re kosher. Some meals we eat like fruits and veggies won’t have a hechser. Yet, we purchase them, bring them home and inspect them according to Jewish law, prepared them once we wish and if we are prepared to consumer them, we are saying a blessing after which eat them.
We don’t mix milk and meat and despite the fact that the meat have a hechsher (unless of course you’re a shochet who slaughters and butchers their own creatures) and also the milk have a hechsher (unless of course you’ve your personal cow) so both of them are kosher, we won’t eat them simultaneously.
Throughout passover, something could have a normal hechsher so it’s kosher but it’s not kosher for passover so we don’t consume it until AFTER passover.
Rabbi’s blessing your meals are not part of kosher law.
