    Abstract:
    Justifications for foodways are too often ignored in the academic study of commensality. In seeking to understand how a particular group constructs the rules around the table – what, how, and with whom one will or will not eat – the rationales for these rules must be factored into any scholarly analysis. In this essay, I use the example of ancient Jewish apologies for the kosher laws to remind scholars of the importance of this consideration.
