    That rasha also cared more for animals than for Jews.

    I can never understand how, especially, Frum Orthodox Jews kill and eat animals. If you believe your Hashem wants you to kill and eat animals that feel pain and want to live just like us who have a family of their own, something is so wrong. Don’t say “they were created for us to eat” Stop with tradition that makes no sense. Start thinking why you do things that you do. We’re in 2019 when we DO NOT need to be eating animals to survive or be healthy. Think about things you’re doing that’s tradition and makes zero sense to… Read more »

    Oy vey. What terrible news. The banning of shechita started right here in crown heights. There was a Kaporos on Empire blvd years ago that was shut down due to our community members. Look how far this can go. First there is the shutting down a Kaporos in crown heights. Then we see a ban is shechita in another country. The Rebbe said what happens in crown heights effects the entire world. I hope that in Belgium there is hope for a change. I know in crown heights we need to be on a higher level than the rest of… Read more »

    You don’t understand? Then start with the basics. These include Bereishis (Genesis) 9:3, and Devarim (Deuteronomy) 12:15 and 12:21, and the commentaries on those verses. Eventually, work your way up to the laws of kosher slaughter and of meat preparation in Shulchan Aruch (the Code of Jewish Law), and work from there.

    (Oh, and don’t forget to look at a good part of Vayikra (Leviticus), with its instructions on offering animal sacrifices, not just voluntary but also obligatory ones.)

    When Slaughtering animals , it is so quick. The animals dont suffer.
    G-d is kind. He doesnt want animals to suffer. Our kind G-d permits us to eat animals. It is a mitzvah to eat meat on holidays.
    You dont have to eat animals, but i dont see it as cruel

    Many bugs and critters are killed so that their perfect looking veggies at Whole Foods aren’t half eaten by pests.

    Torah scrolls, mezuzas, tefilin and shofar are made from an animal. So you basically are saying to end Judaism

    “Ain Simcha ella Be”Bassar Ve’Yayin” You make the assumption that Animals and Humans and are on the same leval! ( There is Domem, Tzomeach, Chai, And Midaber. Midabe is higher then all the rest) since the begining of the world They WERE created to be eaten. when moshiach comes they will be brought as sacrifices for many purposes. we say Korbonnos every day! or should we strike that from our Davening? We have laws to make sure they are killed in a fashion that is humane. maybe yu should show compassion to vegetables ! why should the be eaten indiscriminately.… Read more »

    What does your comment have to do with banning Kosher slaughter and what does eating meat have to do with tradition? Do you not realize that this law is not banning meat!? It only bans the way the animal is killed. Roughly 9 billion chickens are killed for meat each year in the US alone. Most of it are non kosherly slaughtered. If your goal is to try to represent yourself as someone of higher intellect, you sure are doing a terrible job. Please open a book, or just think. By all accounts, the Rebbe was a genius and at… Read more »

    There is going to be a lot of pressure from the world on mila and shechita moving forward, it is only going to get worse.

    CLEARLY THIS IS EITHER GOY SPEWING HIS ANTI JEWISH RHETORIC OR A SELF HATING JEW IN BLIND IGNORANCE.

    #2 Do you call your animals you “children”?

    If a cat has female kittens, do you say they are the cat’s ‘daughters’?

    To #10 Unfortunately, you are 100% right, may H-sh-m have rachmonos on us.

    To everyone else up through #9, great posts, thank you.

    To #11 You are also right.

    My friend’s father is a shochet. He nearly cut off his whole hand without feeling it. The shchita knife is so sharp it doesn’t hurt the animal!! Don’t be smarter than Hashem, HE created the animal and the way to shecht it!

    If you eat no animal products at all, no eggs, fish, milk etc then it is likely you will lack vitamin b12.
