yesterday's shchita

I was going to write a post describing yesterday's shchita with more pictures, but I have written such posts in the past, and how different can it be anyway, unless something goes wrong.

If you want me to put up some gory pictures and a description, write so in the comments...

---------

I could just put up the old pictures from previous shchitas, and you guys would never know. the pics look pretty similar to the old ones. A cow with its head hanging off looks the same in August as it did in March (or whenever the previous one was). But you asked for it, you got it.


My 10 year old son accompanied me this time and took most of the pictures....

  7. Interesting pics... I have never seen a shochet at work before.

    I recall a scene from a Douglas Adams book, when the heroes are at a restaurant, and the waiter asks if they want to meet the Dish of the Day. When they agree, a cow comes to the table.

    "I just don't want to eat an animal that's standing there inviting me to," said Arthur. "It's heartless."

    "Better than eating an animal that doesn't want to be eaten," said Zaphod.


    I don't know where that fits in, but it popped into my mind from this post. Enjoy the beef.

  13. B"H

    Cool. Animal blood.

    Reminds me of home in Tapu'ah.

  15. You are one distorted person, a horrific mistake made by god. The fact that you've created seven kids makes me terrified – I hope a miracle will happen and they wont grow up to become monsters as yourself. I wish you all the worst that life can bring.

  16. sorry I offended you, Regev. I am not sure how I did though... are you offended by the fact that I shechted a cow? If that is it, then I am sorry it offended you, but I will not retract or apologize for what I did, as it is a mitzva whether you like it or not. Are you a vegetarian? do you eat meat but just prefer not to think how the animal got killed? what is your story?

  17. יש מצוות המורות לאדם מה הוא חייב לעשות, ויש מצוות המורות לו איך לעשות דבר מה, אף שהוא כלל אינו מחוייב לבצעו. התורה לא ציוותה עליך לשחוט את אותם בעלי חיים אומללים. אתה, באכזריותך, בחרת לעשות כן. אקווה לפחות שעשית זאת תוך הקטנת צער בעלי החיים, כפי שלהבנתי מצווה התורה. מכל מקום בך עצמך לא ניכר כנראה צער על העניין. אפילו העלית תמונות לאינטרנט, להראות לחבר'ה. מילא; את הנעשה אין להשיב. עדיין פתוחה בפניך בכל יום האפשרות לחדול מההתאכזרות לבעלי החיים. מי ייתן וכך יהיה.
    ובתשובה לשאלתך: כן, אני צמחוני.

  18. what you are saying is true of any shochet - no specific shochet is obligated to be "the one" to shecht.

    you are correct. The gemara even says that someone who has a trait of "blood" should be a mohel or a shochet and that way he at least converts his bad inclination to a mitzva. Perhaps I have a touch of achzaruyot, but at least I let it out in the form of a mitzva.

    And yes, we try to minimize as much as possible any tzaar baalei chayim.

    I put the pictures up because people find it educational and interesting.

  19. אני מוכרח להודות שאני מופתע מהכנות שלך ובפרט מכך שפרסמת את תגובותיי. מכול מקום טוב שהעלית את התמונות, זה אכן חשוב שאנשים יראו מה עובר על בעלי-החיים האומללים לפני שהם מגיעים לצלחת.

  20. even though I might do something so barbaric as to shecht and post about it along with being orthodox, you would be surprised at how liberal and open minded I really am....

    chag sameach and thanks for taking the time to stop in and express yourself.
