Tonight is the 4th yerzeit (anniversary of my mothers death) and just this afternoon her father passed from this world as well. Death has touched my life in so many ways over the past several years. Coping with this has been a long and difficult process, but having gone through it I'm now able appreciate life, love and family more than I ever had before. Learning and practicing kosher slaughter has greatly helped me in my path towards embracing death. I believe that killing animals for food is a very effective and important way for our species to interface with and learn about the dying and it seems clear to me that our total disconnection with this process has greatly increased people's fear of death in the modern world. This is an important subject, which I will elaborate on more in the future. But in the meantime I must focus on my family and will keep this post brief. So in the name of brevity and in honor of my Mom's yerzeit as well as my grandfathers memory I've decided to re-post my kosher slaughter video. It discusses how my Mother's death and learning kosher slaughter changed the way I relate to light, life, death and darkness.
