Cultured meat doesn’t mean that the chunk of protein likes classical music and visits museums of contemporary art. Rather, the meat cells have been cultured – or grown – in a petri dish rather than an animal’s womb.
The Hebrew term is בשר מתורבת,
בשר מתורבת יכול לייתר שחיטת בהמות.
Cultured meat can eliminate the slaughter of animals.
means meat, but why מתורבת?
It comes from the word for culture – תרבות
– which itself comes from the root ר.ב.י
meaning great in size (as in רב
– rabbi, someone great in Torah knowledge): something “cultured” grows in size.
