Does anyone have links for Shechita material. Like the pdf of Simla Chadasha translated and pdf of Shechita knife and stones from R' Loike?

    For a start, try the Simla Chadasha in the original Hebrew from hebrewbooks.org. Here is part of Rabbi Loike's English translation of that sefer (though be warned that it's incomplete)

  • I'm not sure where you can find that online....there are some pdf guides to tefisa (holding the chicken) up on YUTorah.org; check that out

  • This pdf is about how to hold the chicken...look at all the other YUTorah stuff from Rabbi Loike; there's a lot of good stuff there ;-)

You can buy it The Art of Crafting the Shechitah Knife and Stone and a translation of Simla Chadasha both by R Loike on Lulu.


These are recordings of classes of instruction in Shechita in English.
