    Nu? So what do the observant Jews here have to say about this question? Or about zombies attending shul or the replicator question?

    It depends on what they're made of. No pig hoof candles.

    The replicator question will have to be dealt with soon as lab-grown meat is just a step towards that.

    Years ago, my dad (ZT"L) asked me to do some research into the "zombie" question not so much about zombies but about a person who is fully dead (distinct from a case in which someone is legally dead but clearly alive) but who comes back to life and appears totally alive. I looked into rulings about sleeping people, golems and such. He was writing a story (available here) about such a situation and wanted it grounded in actual law.

    That sounds like the classic 'near death experience' situation depending on what is meant by 'fully dead' which might not be 'temporarily dead'.

    "Not really dead" shouldn't be a problem.

    I should have known. This thread came from Facebook originally. And someone posted a link that answers the replicated question

    Is Replicated Food Kosher? – לעולם ועד
    Like any good machloket, we will have to analyze the issue from both perspectives, however for this blog post we’re just going to analyze the replicators from the show’s point of view – that the replicators assemble matter from pure energy. In that case, would food designed to look like meat be meat? Would something with the same molecular pattern as pork be considered pork? B’etzrat Hashem there will be future post which examines the issue from the technical manual’s perspective.

    (a lot of detailed discourse followed ending with):

    Although none of these sources talk directly about food created by energy, it is clear that when considering the status of a piece of meat that came from a non-natural source, it is judged based on its origin and not its form. Even if actual donket meat were to appear without coming from a donkey, it would be kosher. It follows then that food created from pure energy would be kosher, regardless of what molecular pattern the user asked the food replicators to duplicate. The similarity in taste and structure when compared to other foods would be only coincidental from a halachic standpoint. For these reasons it would also be parve – neither meat nor dairy. A kosher keeping Jew in the 24th century could eat a replicated bacon cheeseburger knowing that it was kosher. The food is a new creation, and is kosher from the outset.

    The premise of the story was that the guy was fully dead. My father liked writing stories which messed with subtle issues in Jewish law.

    Rav Yehuda says that Rav says:...Even leviathan the slant serpent and leviathan the tortuous serpent He created male and female. And if they would have coupled and produced offspring, they would have destroyed the entire world. What did the Holy One, Blessed be He, do? He castrated the male and killed the female, and salted the female to preserve it for the banquet for the righteous in the future.
    Rabba says
    that Rabbi Yoḥanan says: In the future, the Holy One, Blessed be He, will make a feast for the righteous from the flesh of the leviathan...

    No wonder!

    Or bacon:(

    DIY Bacon Candles Make Your Entire Life Smell Like Bacon Recipe

    Doesn't affect me, I broke several Jewish kosher laws tonight. I made pasta bolognese. Let's see bacon along with beef and cream in one dish counts for at least two.

    But it was so amazingly good I knew that Quob had blessed me.

    Ramen.

    If you're not Jewish, you haven't broken any Jewish Laws.
    It would be like a Jewish non-Priest saying that he broke Jewish Law by marrying a divorcee, when it's only Priests who can't marry them.
