    NOT open to interpretation. What is G-d given cannot be adjudicated by the likes of Yoffie. Clearly, a pig or lobster is certainly forbidden in Jewish law, and is as clear as the nose on your face. I once went to dinner with a Chief Reform Rabbi of a certain country. A person so powerful, he regularly met with the Pope. At a Japanese restaurant, he shockingly ordered and ate every conceivable shrimp, prawn, octopus, and clam. Such Rabbinate cannot be permitted to judge and dispense Torah laws. These are not inventions of Rabbis, but clear edicts from the L-rd. Please do not address subjects that you clearly are clueless about. Any Rabbi who violates the clear-cut laws of G-d cannot be held in the same esteem as a G-d fearing Jew, who obeys all the L-rd's commandments. Reform Rabbis just don't cut it, to suggest otherwise dilutes the definition of Rabbi. Just as a .200 hitter cannot enter the Hall of Fame, so cannot a Rabbi who exhibits poor behavior toward G-d.
