The Ba’al Shem Tov was a great teacher and shochet (ritual slaughterer) in the 18th century who, after many years, decided to retire as a shochet and sell his tools. While visiting his sale, his customers were surprised to learn about his untraditional methods, and the great amount of compassion that went into his slaughtering process. This story is retold by Jerry Kaye, director of URJ Olin-Sang-Ruby institute.
