Raising Pigs in Israel Could Become a Reality


Israel’s religious Minister of Agriculture Uri Ariel admitted to Army Radio that a request to raise pigs in Israel was being studied by the ministry at a professional level but said it would probably be rejected.

“The inquiry is required by law,” he said. “We are careful to be particular about a light issue as much as a heavy one (kalah kechamurah) when it comes to the law.”

Fifteen years ago, there was a storm in the Knesset when Judge Michael Cheshin of the High Court was looking into the possible legality of selling pork in Carmiel, Beit Shemesh and Teveriah due to an influx of newcomers from the former Soviet Union.

    • I definitely need to change my vacuum bag and could probably use a new belt already. I wouldn’t want to vacuum up a snake. It wouldn’t fit and it would jam the vacuum cleaner. Then the belt would tear and a burning stench would ensue.
