I live the same “kosher” life that this author does. It is my way of honoring G-d in my own way. I feel like I’ve seperated myself a ittle bit , sacrificed a little bit and by following a little bit, I always have the word of G-d in front of me. It’s my way of keeping tradition alive. No one can keep all 613 commandments in this century. We are not supposed to be perfect. We are supposed to try hard. Any mitzvah that we can keep is a good thing and should not be nitpicked about.
