This is a lecture by Shaye J. D. Cohen who is a Professor of Hebrew Literature and Philosophy in the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations at Harvard University. He is a well-known historian who also holds rabbinic ordination from the Jewish Theological Seminary. If University lectures typically don't bore you, then Dr. Cohen will most likely challenge your thinking about Jewish food laws and their place in the Bible.
