...when the Torah speaks about food that is permissible and prohibited it is referring to whether it is tahor or tame’ (purity status)


Kashrut
is a widely misunderstood term.  Most people understand kashrut as referring to qualifications for permissible and prohibited foods.  In a sense, this is correct; however, when the Torah speaks about food that is permissible and prohibited it is referring to whether it is tahor or tame’; and this refers to its purity status.  The implications of an item's purity status reach far beyond the table.  They directly impact a person's purity.  Therefore, Kashrut in a Karaite setting, is merely a subset of the much larger category of tahorah and tum’ah.  Below, we have compiled a list of articles that deal with Kashrut from a Karaite perspective.
