An unusual case of a non-Jewish butcher and restaurant owner who was arrested for helping Jews obtain kosher meat is reported today from Hammelburg, Bavaria.

The butcher is charged with complicity in violating the anti-shechita laws, which prohibit the slaughtering of animals in accordance with the Jewish ritual.
