Jewish Agency Head: Kosher slaughter ban is like outlawing Judaism – Jewish Agency head, Isaac Herzog, urges EU heads of state to drop kosher slaughter ban. “These are foundations of Jewish religious practice“ | Israel National News
Chairman of the Executive of The Jewish Agency for Israel, Isaac Herzog, sent urgent missives to European heads of state on Wednesday, launching a campaign to protest the ban on Kosher slaughter in Belgium. The legislation prohibiting Kosher slaughter was recently upheld by the European Court of Justice, which rejected an appeal by the Belgian Jewish community. There is marked concern that other European nations will follow suit and adopt similar legislation, preventing Jews across Europe to live a Jewish religious life as they have done on the continent for thousands of years.
