KIS ANNOUNCEMENT ON COURT JUDGEMENT ON KOSHER SLAUGHTER Print E-mail
Friday, 29 October 2021 14:40
The Greek Jewry is highly concerned about the Judgement of the Hellenic Council of the State no 1751/2021, which annuls the Joint Ministerial Decision of 2017.

This Judgement -which literally forbids Kosher religious slaughter- is a strike against the right of the Greek Jews to freely practice their religion and observe the traditions of Jewish faith. Keeping kosher diet is an integral part of the Judaic law, it is being observed throughout centuries, and its banning would constitute a heavy blow to the Jewish way of life.

We hope that the Greek State’s competent authorities will regulate the issue of animal slaughter with a just and viable solution that will safeguard the continuation of the observance of the religious duties of the Greek Jews, as well as of the thousands of Jewish visitors in Greece.
