Is Kosher meat considered Halal? I have been told that they are the same.

Kosher rules and regulations comply with standards that relates to Jews. Just as Muslims have difference of opinion in matters that pertain to meats that are halal and haram, Jews too have differences amongst themselves as to what is accepted and forbidden as it relates to Kosher. Kosher standards do not always apply to Muslim consumer standards. (Example: For a jew alcohol in a kosher product would be viewed as ‘kosher,’ to apply this standard towards a Muslim would be absolutely incorrect despite a kosher certification!)
