The animal rights people show up claiming, “Meat is murder!” while the Orthodox and Hasidic Jews who practice this ceremony accuse the activists of antisemitism and violating their freedom of religion.

In fact, he says, it is that very mysticism that has led him not to use chickens for the ritual.< Less
