Are the cows used to make leather for Tefillin killed humanely? I don't want to pray with something bound to me when that something was made from an inhumanely killed animal.

    I believe they are killed humanely, but I can't prove it to you since I don't know for certain. I've edited your question for the spelling, if I've done anything you don't like you can edit yourself to fix it. – MTL Nov 6 '14 at 23:01

    I've closed this question because it doesn't specify a standard for humaneness. – msh210 Nov 6 '14 at 23:30

    @mordcah. I think you raise an excellent question. This was discussed at the following web site: jewishjournal.com/socialjusticerav/item/… – JJLL Nov 7 '14 at 1:01

    We can't judge "humane" as that's not an objective standard, but if you were to edit this to ask instead how the cows are killed, that would be answerable and then you could evaluate the humanity of that yourself. (Edit: but, I later discovered, it would be a duplicate. I've reclosed this as a dupe.) – Monica Cellio Nov 7 '14 at 2:08
