gelatin alternative agar-agar? -Cheese cake

i have a little dilemma. I cannot use gelatin due to religous reasons and cannot use kosher gelatin either. ive read that agar-agar is a good alternative. does anyone know how i would substitute it?

the recipe says:
Meanwhile, in a small cup, sprinkle the gelatin over the cold water and let stand about 2-3 minutes or until the gelatin has become soft and spongy. Add the gelatin to the warm strawberry sauce and heat (over low heat), stirring constantly, until the gelatin has dissolved.
