Re’eh 5781 – Consuming Meat

As long as the people of Israel wandered in the wilderness, they were permitted to consume meat only in the form of a sacrificial meal.  But what would happen once they entered the land and were no longer in proximity to the Mishkan/Tabernacle?  The answer to this question may have implications for our modern meat consumption as well.
