Jews and Muslims Have Joint Beef With Polish Ban

The CEO of the European Jewish Association (EJA), Rabbi Menachem Margolin, along with the Chief Mufti of Poland Tomasz Miskiewicz delivered an official complaint to the European Union (EU) against Poland over its ban of ritual slaughter (shechita).

Rabbi Margolin noted "the Jewish commandment of kosher shechita has been observed throughout the world for over 3,000 years. It is very disappointing to see that precisely in Poland Jews can't live according to their faith in the year 2013. We will continue fighting to allow Jews and Muslims to conduct a traditional lifestyle in Poland."
