Course 15: Respect for Living Creatures I
In our generation, humanity has begun to re-examine many of its core values, and one outcome has been an increasing concern for establishing governmental and corporate standards for animal welfare (and for some, the relevance of animal rights in this process). So it is important that we now look closely and seriously at the guidance provided by the Torah’s Noahide Code in this important area.
For those seeking to live in accordance with the eternal commandments which God gave through Moses, the need to understand the implications of both the entire Noahide Code and this particular section is critical. As observers will see, many of the modern public issues being discussed in the realm of animal welfare with respect to slaughter, pre-slaughter handling, and post-slaughter waiting for the animal to expire, are covered by this course. It now becomes a source for providing guidance to all consumers, along with the regulators and overseers of the modern meat industry, and it challenges us all to be concerned with improving the handling of animals – both on the farm and in our communities, and most importantly in the arena of the compassionate use of animals for human food.
During this course you will understand how the treatment of animals should be approached in keeping with modern industry guidelines for animal welfare, while also meeting the ancient but continuously relevant rules of “Eiver Min Ha’ĥai.”
