Dearth of Kosher Meat in Tel Aviv, Result of Government Order

Download PDF for this date

Kosher meat will not be available for the next few days in Tel Aviv, due to the action of the government in closing the leather factory of Liebovitch, on the site of which Jewish butchers temporarily have been slaughtering animals for food.

In issuing the order the Government is helping the Jaffa municipality, whose aim it is to compel the Jewish butchers to slaughter their animals at Jaffa. Jaffa is primarily Arab, and has instituted an economic boycott against the Jews. The Jewish butchers categorically refuse to go to Jaffa.

Protests have been sent to the government by the municipality of Tel Aviv and the Tel Aviv Kehillah.
