Many assume that when we recite blessings for food (such as “hamotzi”), we are in effect blessing the food we are about to consume. In reality, though, blessings have a very different function and, understood correctly, they provide a crucial key to understanding the Jewish world-view. What do kashrut and blessings say about our relationship to this earth? This is the fundamental question Dr. Kraemer will address in his presentation.
