Abstract and Keywords

This article takes a look at the Jewish diet in Palestine. It shows what the Jews in Roman Palestine ate, and determines to what degree there was a uniquely Jewish diet in antiquity. It looks at how much Jewish food practices might have separated the Jews from non-Jews, from other Jews, and from Gentiles. The next section studies the eating habits of the Jews and Romans, before it introduces the concept of the Passover seder and the various meal rituals.

Keywords: Jewish diet, Jewish food practices, eating habits, Passover seder, meal rituals
