BEEF THAT JEWS EAT
WHERE CATTLE ARE KILLED ACCORD
ING TO THE RABBINICAL LAW.
A Special Department la the Chicago
Stockyards Where Choice Animals Are
Slain Under Hebrew Inspection and
Where Jews Have Foil Swing-.
Perhaps most persons would not believe
that in so intensely a modern enterprise as
the Chicago stockyards there are today
practiced set rules laid down in the Old
Testament for the slaughtering of cattle.
Yet such is the case. But while the re
ligious prescriptions are carried ont to the
letter there is a practical side to the ar
rangement, else it would not be in opera
tion. There are dollars and cents in it, as
there are in about every branch of indus
try in this wonder city of the world. It is
a special department of Mr. Armour's
business and is carried on for the orthodox
Jews, whose demands for meats that have
been Biblically prepared is large and pro
A large proportion of the orthodox Jews
still adhere ritridly to the laws of their re
ligion, and when they are unable to get
meat selected and prepared for cooking in
the prescribed manner they do without it.
Mr. Armour heard that the Jews ate the
fore quarters of beef when butchered ac
cording to the requirements of their re
ligion, but never the hind quarters. He
knew from experience that it was much
easier to dispose of hind quarters at a high
price tliau it was to get rid of the fore
quarters at a low price. Combining these
two facts in his reasoning, Mr. Armour
evolved tbe idea of establishing a special
department for the slaughtering of cattle
for the orthodox Jews. He employed a stir
ring young Hebrew to take charge of the
enterprise and arrange matters wish the
headsof the local synagogues. Schochetts,
who are especially trained by the rabbi to
slaughter bullocks according to the Jewish
method and to detect traces of disease in
the animal by a postmortem examination
of its viscera and flesh, were detailed by
the rabbi to conduct the killing in the
Jewish department of the packing house.
These schochetts are put through a very
thorough course of training.
The schochetts first select from the kill
ing pen such bullocks as appear to be per
fectly sound. These are separated from
the others and driven to the special killing
pen. They are dropped into stalls opening
into the room where the schochetts oper
ate, and are held there in readiness for
In the other departments tbe bullock is
first knocked down and stunned by a
sledge hammer blow on the head, after
which the throat of the animal is cut. The
stunning of cattle in killing is prohibited,
however, by the Hebraic laws, and it is
necessary to get the ox down and expose
his neck to the schochett's knife without
inflicting pain. This is accomplished by
means of a windlass connected with the
machinery of the establishment. A strong
bracelet attached to a heavy chain, which
hangs from the ceiling, is fastened by a
Gentile butcher to the animal's hind leg,
another Gentile pushes a lever and the ox
is hauled up into midair with his front
feet barely touching the floor. The Gen
tiles by means of a rope pull the fore feet
from nnder and the animal is let down on
The frightened animal bellows and
struggles frantically, but the Gentiles are
accustomed to wrestling matches of this
sort and soon have him "three points
down." With the ox lying flat on his side
the butchers throw his bead well baok so
as to expose the jugular. The schochett
walks up leisurely, sponges off the ani
mal's throat and locates tbe big vein in
the neck. A single stroke of the knife
severs the jugular vein, the trachea aud
the esophagus. The carcass is then
flayed and drawn by the Gentiles. The
sons of Israel proceed to hold a post
mortem. The lungs are inflated and care
fully tested. If the examination shows
them to be imperfect or other indications
of disease are found the schochetts reject
the beef. Ft sometimes happens that in
hauling tbe bullock up and throwing him
a leg is broken. In such cases the animal
is promptly rejected by the schochetts, for
it is not permitted to eat the flesh of an
animal that has been injured. 1
If from the examination of tbe carcass it
appears tnat the animal was sound ana
in good health tbe work of removing the
veins is begun.
"Moreover, ye shall eat no manner o
kl.uul U.,f fntcln.nr lw.l U'
any of your dwellings," is the Lord's com
mandment as recorded in the third ' book
Great stress was laid on this passage by
the rabbis. The flesh served to the ortho
dox Hebrew must be entirely free from
blood. In the old countries the Jewish
butcher is able to extract the vein from
the entire carcass of the ox, and when this
is done the whole beef may be utiliA-d, but
in this country the butcher is not suffi
ciently skilled to "vein" the hind quarters;
consequently the Hebrews here areallowed
to eat no part of the animal baok of the
eleventh rib. J
"No Jew can eat beef slaughtered in the
manner common in this country without
violating his religion to some extent," said
a prominent rabbi when questioned con
cerning the Jewish method of -butchering.
"The laws of our church are based upon
nnRf)n for nist-ann we do not rat lite
flesh of a bullock which has been stunned j
by a blow on the head before cutting its
throat, primarily because out laws forbid
it, but there are good reasons for the law.
The blow on the bullock's head shocks him
so that when the veins of the neck are sev
ered the animal does not bleed freely and
much of the blood remains in tbe carcass.
Then ours is a humane religion. Cruelty
to animals is not to lie tolerated. We aim
to slay animals without pain. By using a
knife with an edge exceedingly sharp and
free from nicks tbe stroke that kills it
produces no pain, but only a tickling sen
"Many of the laws laid down in the Bible
and the Talmud concerning the use of meat
for food, in fact nearly all of them, are
based upon sanitary considerations. In
eating the meat of a diseased or crippled
ox one runs a great risk of taking disease
germs into his own system. The flesh of
most of the animals which the Jews are
forbidden to eat is admitted to be un
wholesome by scientific authorities of all
creeds. It is generally conceded that pork
is not a healthful article of diet, especially
in tbe warmer climates. The rabbit and
other wild animals which are prohibited
are unclean, and their flesh is not a safe
article of food." Chicago Tribune.
