ABSTRACT
The article discusses a trial in Aberdeen, Scotland that sought to outlaw shechita, the Jewish method of slaughtering animals for food. The trial involved allegations of cruelty to animals among the Aberdeen Jewish community along with discussions of slaughterhouse hygiene. The possibility that anti-Semitism fueled Aberdeen's non-Jewish community in charges of animal cruelty is discussed by the author. Various Jewish dietary laws are discussed, along with the trial proceedings. A plebiscite in Switzerland that outlawed the practice is analyzed.
