EJC's Kantor unveils model bill for Europe on regulating ritual slaughter
European Jewish Congress President Moshe Kantor unveiled a model bill designed to set "strict legal terms" on religious freedoms for the continent.
Kantor, who is also co-chairman of the European Council on Tolerance and Reconciliation, or ECTR, presented the model bill on Oct. 15 at the European Parliament.
Designed to delineate the legal boundaries of tolerance in light of "anti-Semitism, racism and attempts to limit freedom of worship in Europe," the document proposes to enshrine Jewish and Muslim religious slaughter practices, shechitah and halal, as well as ritual circumcision. It also recognized the state's right to regulate the practices.
