This question already has an answer here:
I read (will edit source, when I locate it) that the parchment used from a Torah must come from a "kosher animal".
Does the term "kosher" mean "edible" or just an animal that is among the list of being kosher, i.e. split hooves and a ruminant. Thus, can a "kosher list" animal that was not slaughtered be used as Torah parchment?
