On Passover, and throughout the year, observant Jews eat only food certified as Kosher. That means it must meet the requirements of millennia old Jewish law. Two rabbis in southern Colorado think that adding another dimension to the definition of kosher will make Judaism more relevant in the 21st century. They’re part of the Jewish Renewal movement. KRCC’s Shanna Lewis visited with the rabbis and has this report.
