Detail Description

Resolution of a meeting held on 2 January, 1927, presided by R. Dr. Oppenheim of Manheim, to asses and decide how to proceed with the anti-Semitic anti- ritual slaughter laws of the German government. In Europe of the interwar years, restrictions were imposed on ritual slaughter, by various anti-Semitic organizations acting under the guise of prevention of cruelty to animals.

One of the rabbis who was very active in the battle against the Kosher slaughter ban was R. Chaim Ozer Grodzinski of Vilna, who dispatched letters on the topic to many European rabbis, and did his utmost to forestall the ban.
