“Regulation” (‘Bestimmung’) issued by the [City] Council of Frankfurt [Present-day Germany; Free Imperial City of Frankfurt]: “[…] only a small number of Jewish butchers are to receive permission to slaughter [cattle] in a ritual manner*.” [Researcher’s note: At the time, Jews were only permitted to sell meat by the pound as per a Council decision in 1631. Up until then, Jews were not permitted to sell meat in small quantities at all. *Refers to kosher laws.]
