Organic Meets Kosher and Halal

Video Recording: Dialogical lecture series "Judaism and Islam in the Diaspora"

Judaism and Islam are often met with suspicion when it comes to their treatment of animals. Ritual slaughter, especially, is often regarded as morally objectionable by the non-Jewish and non-Muslim majority society. But how are questions around animal ethics, mass consumption, and environmental protection discussed within Jewish and Islamic theology? And what role does ritual slaughter play in flagging the "otherness" of religious minorities?
