Pigs in Jewish Law and Lore with the Maggid of Melbourne, Levi Cooper

The Maggid of Melbourne was recently on a research trip to Frankfurt am Main, Germany. While in residence at the Max Planck Institute for Legal History and Legal Theory, Levi Cooper delved into various aspects of pigs in Jewish law and Jewish lore. Thanks to guidance from the local rabbinic leadership and the KosherScan app, Levi had no problems keeping kosher, but this did not stop him embarking on an intellectual voyage of discovery.
