Selling Non-kosher recipe books


Rabbi David Sperling

Shevat 11, 5774
Dear Rabbi, I am currently publishing a book and I have all the rights to it even though I did not write it. This book contains some non-kosher recipes. Am I allowed to sell it on Many thanks, David
Shalom, If the book is not aimed explicitly for Jewish readers then it is fine. If the book is explicitly for Jews – "David's Shabbat Recipe Book" for example – then it would be forbidden to sell it as it encourages eating non-kosher food. Blessings.
