Mitzvah #48

Sefer Ha'mitzvos Ha'Katzar (The concise book of mitzvos)
By the Chofetz Chaim

This book lists the Torah mitzvos that can be observed today

First Section the Positive Commandments

48. It is a positive commandment to ritually slaughter an animal or fowl if one wants to eat its meat

As it states in Devarim (Deuteronomy) 12:21, "you shall slaughter from your cattle or your flock... as I have commanded you." It was verbally taught from G-d to Moshe, our teacher, of blessed memory, the laws of ritual slaughter: the laws of the gullet and the windpipe, the laws of cutting most of the tube for a fowl and cutting most of both in an animal, and about pausing, pressing the knife, inserting it under cover, cutting at a slant, and tearing loose.
This is required in all places and at all times for men and for women.
