Mitzvah #146 - Shechita - Ritual slaughter

It's a Mitzva to slaughter all animals and birds that one wants to eat.

The laws of slaughtering the Kosher way - Shechita - were given to Moshe on Mt. Sinai as part of the Oral Law.

Applies to everybody, everywhere, always.

Verse: "Slaughter your sheep and cattle... as I have commanded you" (Devarim 12:21)
