      Polish Official Calls for Return of Kosher Slaughter

      Kosher ritual slaughter was banned in Poland last year, with legislators claiming that it was incompatible with laws preventing cruelty to animals.

      Poland has faced criticism from both the Jewish community as well as from Israel, whose Foreign Ministry said the ban on kosher slaughter methods damaged efforts to rehabilitate Jewish life in the country. Despite criticism, Warsaw has not budged on the matter.
