Jacob Jakobowitz was sentenced by the Leipzig court to four months in prison because he was caught slaughtering fowl in accordance with kosher laws for sheichets. In his defense Jakobowitz said he had not meant to perform the job of sheichet, and that he had attempted to sever the heads of the chickens completely, a violation of the kosher laws.
