Because G-d said so.

Kashrut may have some rational explanations, but what it comes down to is that it's a G-dly command.

In a nutshell, G-d says to keep kosher in the Torah. Some references are Leviticus 11, Deuteronomy 12 and Deuteronomy 14. G-d also says that the nation of Israel keep His commandments forever in many places, such as Deuteronomy 11.

The truth is, I really don't find it so hard to keep kosher. There are so many kosher restraunts and so many food in the grocery store has kosher symbols on it.

It's spiritually healthier for Jews, and it connects us to an action that has been practiced, by Jews, for thousands of years (often under the threat of death and persecution)..............Also, according to Maimonides, in the Guide for The Perplexed, keeping Kosher helps us maintain our unity, exclusivity, and thus ensure the perservation of our beutiful way of life!!!
