Shlomo Winegarten

May 27, 2011

Henry Grunwald OBE, QC, Chairman of Shechita UK said:

“It is with shock and immense sadness that Shechita UK announces the passing of Shlomo Winegarten, one of its founders. Shlomo was the inspiration for the modernising and professionalising of the campaign to promote awareness of Shechita and to protect Shechita from the onslaught of ill-informed attack. He was a man of huge integrity, whose rare combination of thoughtful insight, knowledge, humour and loyalty will be missed by all his colleagues.”
