Greece Joins Many European Countries in Banning Kosher Shechita

Athens…Europe continues to tighten its stranglehold on banning shechita as Greece was the latest country to ban kosher and halal slaughter. Greece’s highest court issued the ban despite a government exemption for religious slaughter. Rabbi Menachem Margolin, chairman of the European Jewish Association said that “Jewish freedom of religion is under direct attack across Europe from the very institutions that vowed to protect our communities.”  The EJA leader said, “How can Jews live in Europe if you continue to legislate against us?” This is a question that European countries may receive an answer sooner rather than later.
