EXCLUSIVE: Dean Sheremet- I’m Jewish And Eat Pork, Other Jews Should Be Able To Also
Celebrity chef Dean Sheremet recently posted a story to his Twitter we couldn’t help but take notice of. Specifically, the story detailed how Jews may be able to eat bacon due to a new interpretation of part of the Torah.
We asked Sheremet about this story he posted and he exclusively told us that, “I’m Jewish and I think if God is going to smite me for anything, it’s not my love of pork products.”
“I’ve eaten pork my whole life,” he added. “The only reason I see for people not to eat it is so they don’t feel like they are assimilating and more of an identity thing.”
While we can’t necessarily see this swaying the opinion of extremely devout Jews, it’s definitely interesting to read the initial article and take into consideration Sheremet’s perspective, especially seeing as he is Jewish.
