Rav Yitzchak Levy Lecture 204: The History of the Divine Service at Altars (XIII) – The History of slaughtering non-consecrated animals and eating meat In the previous shiur, we began our discussion of the prohibition of bamot and related to the situation prior to the Mishkan and to the erection of the Mishkan. In the wake of the Torah's account in Vayikra 17, we began to examine the Torah's attitude toward the slaughter of non-consecrated animals after the erection of the Mishkan, and we brought three reasons for the prohibition of slaughtering non-consecrated animals in the wilderness.

Rav Yitzchak Levy Lecture 205: The History of the Divine Service at Altars (XIV) – The History of Slaughtering Non-consecrated Animals and Eating Meat (II) When was man granted permission to eat meat? In the previous shiur, we saw that according to several commentators, man was permitted to eat meat from the very beginning of creation. In this shiur, we will consider the dominant view found in Chazal and the Rishonim, according to which permission to eat meat was granted only in the aftermath of the flood. Why was meat initially prohibited and why was it permitted in the time of Noach? Mikdash - The Temple

In this shiur, we will consider the position according to which the allowance to eat meat symbolizes the spiritual fall of man in the wake of the sins that led to the flood. Mikdash - The Temple
