Rabbi Natan Slifkin’s new book deals with issues of the interface between the animal world and mankind. While noting that animal cruelty does not make the meat produced from that cruelty treife, Rabbi Slifkin notes today’s factory farming methods are clear violations of tzaar baalei hayyim law.
In other words, your meat (and eggs) come from clear violations of Jewish law. But the actual slaughter is kosher.
Do you eat Rubashkin meat? Satmar? Alle? If you do, please explain why clear violations of Jewish law do not matter to you.
