For someone who has never kept kosher before the rules might seem like a lot but I've kept kosher my entire life and unless you don't eat Cholov Stam you can pretty much walk into any store and buy something with a kosher symbol.

I don't blame 'em
I really don't blame him for having a hard time keeping kosher. It's a challenge for all Jews. But I love how they're spreading Judaism around on a famous show on TV.

i've kept kosher my whole life, so i've never even condidered the alternative. it just comes naturally to me. i guess if you've never kept kosher, it can be really challenging. for example, i've never tasted pork or shrimp, but to someone who eats these things often, it may be hard to part with.
