PROMOTE RESPECT FOR RELIGIOUS OBSERVANCE, INCLUDING KOSHER AND HALAL MEAT, RELIGIOUS CLOTHING, CIRCUMCISION, AND FLEXIBLE WORKING TO ACCOMMODATE SHABBAT AND HOLY DAY OBSERVANCE.

 
 

In recent years, the human right to freedom of religion and belief has frequently come under attack around Europe from populist movements. We ask political representatives to protect the right of Jews and Muslims to produce Kosher and Halal meat.

 

We ask for the protection of the initiation rite of circumcision of boys at eight days old, when conducted by a suitably trained practitioner.

 

The default position of society should be that any expression of faith – such as clothing or holy day observance – should be accommodated wherever possible.

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated that many workplaces are able to adopt flexible working arrangements. This should be encouraged to accommodate cultural and religious practices to enable minority workers to participate fully in the workforce.
