Hungarian PM Vows To Protect Jewish Rituals Ahead Of Opening Of Kosher Slaughterhouse

July 14, 2017 from the Vos Is Neias:

"Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban vowed to protect religious freedoms in his country during a talk with foreign rabbis visiting for the opening of a large kosher slaughterhouse for geese."
"Foreign rabbis attended the opening of the slaughterhouse in Csengele, situated approximately 80 miles southeast of Budapest, Koves said. With a capacity for slaughtering 2,400 animals daily, it is one of the largest slaughterhouses of its kind in Europe and is under the joint rabbinical supervision of EMIH and the Chief Rabbinate of Israel."
"There are plans to make halal meat as well at the same slaughterhouse for consumption by Muslims."
"The opening of the slaughterhouse is especially appreciated at a time when parliaments in Belgium’s regions pass motions about 'banning kosher slaughter and other countries are undermining freedom of religion all over Europe.'"
