Food For Thought

eginning this week, Family Fun will in-
clude a section about interesting kosher
foods available throughout metro Detroit.
Each food will be reviewed by members
of The Jewish News staff, with a consensus ul-
timately rende:ing a "forks up" (buy it now!)
or a "forks down" (skip it) rating. If you have
something you would like us to test, please send
the name of the food, where it can be purchased,
and your name and address to Family Fun, clo
The Jewish News.


Jewish law has much to say
about the way people treat an-
imals. We are obligated, for ex-
ample, to feed our pets before
we ourselves sit down to eat.
Yet it also makes clear that
animals should not be placed on
the same level as human be-
ings. A human life is sacred,
and nothing is comparable.
How do you feel about Jew-
ish animal-rights activists? Does
what they are doing have any-
thing to do with Halachah? Do
you regard your pet as a mem-
ber of the family? What if there
was a fire, and you could save
only either your dog or a child
you had never met. Whom
would you help? Is this a diffi-
cult question for you to answer?

people pick up off their hamburgers, hold up

these are a little crisper. Of course, I hap-

After you have come up with
your superhero, consider writ-
ing a comic book. What
