Halacha - Eating Kosher
Submitted by Shirley  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Answer: First of all it is important to point out that accompanying the written "scripture" is the Oral Tradition which is part of the foundation for all Jewish Law. Additionally in this case the Torah repeats the prohibition 3 times, from which the Sages explained refers to three separate prohibitions: not to cook them together, not to eat them together and not to derive any benefit from their mixture. The reference to a "kid" is explained to refer to all lactating animals, the prohibition of fowl with milk is or Rabbinic origin.
