Eating is, as everyone knows, a profoundly Jewish activity. However, there is a deeper side to it.
When a Jew eats, a spiritual interaction is taking place, which involves the whole of existence. There is a Divine energy in the food, and when one eats the food and then uses that energy in order to serve G-d through observance of the Mitzvot, a cosmic cycle is completed.
For this reason, explain chassidic teachings, the question of the kashrut of food is not only a matter of Jewish tradition and life-style, but is something with immense significance for the individual eating and for his or her role in the world. Kosher food is - for spiritual reasons - 'fit' (the literal meaning of 'kosher') to be part of this universal process, non-kosher food is not.
