      Rabbi: Kosher Slaughter Ban Not Anti-Semitic

      Rabbi Melchior noted that the decision to ban kosher slaughter was made by a single member of government – Minister of Agriculture Dan Jorgensen. Minister Jorgensen is relatively new, he noted.

      The Jewish community sought a meeting with the minister to discuss the matter prior to his decision, Rabbi Melchior said, but Jorgensen went ahead with the ban without meeting religious leaders.
