Or Ha'Chayim, Rabbi Chayim ben Attar, Genesis 9:1
1 א
One can ask, why is mean permitted to Noah and not Adam? Because Noah was responsible for the survival of every species and he toiled in the ark to feed and care for the animals, and thus we read in Psalms: The toil of your hands, that shall be your food (Tehilim 128)

Suggested Discussion Questions:

According to the Biblical commentary Or Ha'Chayim, we can only eat what we have raised, suggesting respect for the type of animal husbandry writers such as Michael Pollan and Jonathan Safran Foer lament is disappearing in the face of factory farming. If you had to apply this principle, what would you be able to eat?

Is this type of principles meat eating any better than meat eating generally?

In what other ways might we need to be better connected to the production of the food we eat?
