Announcement banning the consumption of meat unless it had been ritually slaughtered by a Shochet who had been authorized and approved by the community rabbi. The practice of young Shochtim (slaughterers) providing meat to the community as independent contractors is prohibited and the public should regard such meat as unkosher. Endorsed by twenty of the most prominent Rabbis in Russia including: R. Chaim Soloveitchik of Brisk, R. Eliezer Gordon of Telz, R. David Friedman of Karlin, R. Raphael Shapiro of Volozhin and R. Shalom Dov Ber of Lubavitch.
