A shochet ( Jewish ritual slaughter) database?

I don't think there are any databases or networks of shochets. A shochet is the butcher who kill an animal with a one slice with a non nicked knife. There are quite a bit of other aspects to it, but there is no way of contacting them that I know of worldwide. Does anybody know how to make a database or network like this? Also how do you reach out and actually find them?

The benefits of this are its local, the animal doesn't have travel and allows far more Jewish people to access grass fed meat.

Why wouldn't it be legal? Empire, and Hebrew National have to use shochets.

most kosher meat, AKAIK, is also grass-fed. I really like this idea, but I have no idea how the technical side of getting a database going would work.

However, contacting synagogues or other Jewish centers might help with the process. I did a quick search a few weeks ago and found local grass-fed kosher meat in the NYC area, called Mitzvah meat. I'm sure groups like this have connections and over time a database like what you mean could be established.

I've also noticed that a lot of Rabbis seem to know each other, as there are only a handful of rabbinical schools in the country. Through their professional networking, you may be able to find other resources.

Hope this helps.

There's also sites with internet resources, like here: http://jcarrot.org/resources/kosher-sustainable-meat
