Rabbi says meat from genetically cloned pig could be eaten by Jews – including with milk

A prominent Orthodox rabbi in Israel said that meat from a genetically cloned pig would be kosher for consumption by Jews, including when eaten with dairy products.

Rabbi Yuval Cherlow told Ynet in an interview published Wednesday that cloned meat is not subject to the rules that apply to the consumption of regular meat.

Cherlow is quoted as saying that “cloned meat produced from a pig shall not be defined as prohibited for consumption – including with milk.”

In the interview, Cherlow of the Tzohar Rabbinical Organization appears to be talking about meat that is grown artificially in a laboratory from the cells of a pig rather than meat produced from a live pig whose genetic material comes from a cell from which the pig was cloned. However, the article does not quote him as making the distinction.

In the interview ahead of a Bar-Ilan University symposium titled “Science and Halacha” featuring a talk by Cherlow, he advocated rabbinic approval of cloned meat “so that people would not starve, to prevent pollution, and to avoid the suffering of animals.”

Isn't this technically on the DNA levels till going against beliefs. I ask now a question. What if those beliefs are based on a truth long forgotten. What if it causes an event? Just throwing idea's out here...

I believe that you are correct.  Without getting into a theological discussion, It is my opinion that cloning, in and of itself, is against both Jewish and Biblical principles.

I totally agree.  I do believe this is yet one more sign that things are coming to head.
