04THE FUTURE OF THE JEWISH DIASPORALEGAL DEVELOPMENTS AND STATUTORY FRAMEWORKS
Jewish religious practice is premised on the right of unconditional re-ligious freedom. Jewish men and women have repeatedly been depri-ved of this right in the course of European history. Even today, specific religious practices, particularly kosher slaughter and circumcision, are criticized and restricted in some European countries. What protection does European law offer practicing Jews? Where is this at risk? Which conclusions for a Jewish future in Europe can be drawn from legal debate?
