Bill Prohibiting Shechita in Bavaria Passed by Bavarian Parliament

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The Bavarian parliament has passed the bill which was introduced some time ago prohibiting the shechita, the Jewish method of slaughtering animals.

The Social-Democrats joined with the reactionaries and the anti-Semites in the vote on this bill, while the Communists voted against it.

The only possibility of preventing this measure from becoming a law is a veto on the part of the Berlin government. The Jews are hoping that such action will be taken by the Central Government when the matter will be brought before it.
