Check it out here. I’ll find a way to give away these fact cards to readers in the next few weeks. Stay tuned!

    In Lev 7:25 isnt it only talking about the fat of the animal that is offered
    as an offering?

    NOOO. I have to check my doner places to see if they have sheep fat.
    It is only sheep fat, right?

    • Yes; only sheep’s tail (or fat tailed sheep); but the problem is that most doner places are not serving kosher meat anyway. And if you have a kosher doner place, please let me know.

    Just curious, would Israeli shawarma be kosher if it’s not using lamb fat ? Honestly I have not seen the fat at the top of shawarma here.
