Organizations Appeal Veterinary Slaughter Refusal

A task force of Temple organizations and the Task Force for the of Land of Israel appealed to the Jerusalem District Court, Tuesday, seeking relief from the refusal of the Veterinary Authorities in Jerusalem and Beit Dagan to authorize the traditional slaughter and roasting of two goats for studying the practices of the Passover sacrifice on Thursday, the 10th of the Hebrew month of Nissan.

The appeal asks the court to order the Agriculture Ministry to give a permit for the ritual slaughter in the area of the Sherover Promenade in the East Talpiot neighborhood of Jerusalem. Alternately, the petitioners ask that a restraining order be issued to prevent authorities from interfering with the exercise.
