In this hands-on workshop, you will be able to witness a traditional chicken shechita (Jewish ritual slaughter), participate in the kashering process from beginning to end, and ask an experienced shochet (ritual slaughterer) all your questions about kosher meat production and the place of kosher meat in the local food movement. We will also discuss a series of texts from the Torah, the rabbis, and other Jewish thinkers that illustrate traditional Jewish ideas about kosher eating and ethics. This workshop will unmask the mysteries of kosher meat production and explore how the conscious practice of ritual eating changes and deepens our relationships with G-d, animals, and the earth.
