Dec. 30, 1642

Decree, issued by George II, Landgrave of Hesse-Darmstadt [Present-day Germany]: “(3) On Sundays, Jews shall continue to stay inside their homes, unless they are in need of beer, wine, bread, water, or similar items. However, while any [Christian] sermon is in progress, they may not leave their homes under any circumstances. (4) While it is permissible for Jews to slaughter animals in their own homes, or, if so agreed, in the home of a Christian butcher, and sell the meat to Christians, both the Jew and the butcher must indicate the origin of the meat, so that those who find meat disgusting and repulsive, if it has been slaughtered by Jews, will not be defrauded. For each contravention of this mandate, both the Jew and the butcher shall be fined ten guilders.”
