C'tee to Discuss European Threats on Kosher Slaughter


The Knesset Committee on Immigrant Absorption and Diaspora Affairs is scheduled to hold a hearing, Tuesday on the fight by Jewish communities in Europe against the prohibition of kosher slaughtering by national governments. During the hearing programs will be brought up for dealing with the fear of legislation against Jewish ritual slaughter at the informational and political levels vis-a-vis the world's parliaments.

The hearing will also include information about the situation of Jewish communities around the world convinced that the legislation in question is only intended to constitute an additional means of persecuting Jews and defaming Judaism.
