Slaughterers had spiky red hair and red skin. Their skin colour came from prolonged exposure to smoke from redoak chippings. They were naturally nocturnal, waking up at sundown and having lunch in the middle of the night, though slaughterers living in cities like Undertown were generally forced to adapt to diurnality.
Many other deepwoods people did not know that the smoke affected the skin colour of the slaughterers and despised the Slaughterers for their ferocious appearance. It was believed that blood from the butchery had entered their pores and coloured their whole body. No other deepwoods folk wanted to be associated with them and they were called ' the bottom of the pot '.Slaughterers were however very open and welcoming, offering everyone a place in their middle. Touching one's forehead and then touching another person's forehead made them 'brothers'.
The slaughterers were a peaceful folk that loved feasting. Whenever something could be celebrated, a large fire was lit in the middle of the village and woodale, hammelhorn steaks and tilder sausages were served.Slaughterer's were cheerful and loved to dance and sing for example this simple canon:
Like many other Deepwoods folks, the slaughterers believed in the power of amulets. They also feared the Gloamglozer. They had a healthy respect for the dangers of the Deepwoods and preferred the life in a safe community.
In The Last of the Sky Pirates, Rook met the slaughterers from the Slaughterers' Camp who herded their tilder with skycraft. He was rescued by Knuckle from being devoured by logworms on the Silver Pastures. Another slaughterer, Brisket, taught sail-setting to the young librarian-knight apprentices. Knuckle became one of Rook's closest friends and accompanied him to the Foundry Glades where they wanted to free banderbears that were kept as slaves.In Vox, an old slaughterer was sold alongside Rook on the Slave Market of Undertown.In Freeglader, Rook met many slaughterers in the Freeglade Lancers, the most prominent of them being Ligger.
There is an inconsistency regarding the causes for the slaughterers's dark red complexion and hair. If the deep, dark red was really caused by the crimson smoke of redoak chips, this does not explain how slaughterers living in Undertown or in other big cities also had red skin. Moreover, Keris Barkwater, the daughter of a fourthling and a slaughterer, had pale skin and black hair, even though she grew up and lived in a traditional slaughterer camp in the Deepwoods and was exposed to the smokes of curing meat. It is therefore impossible for the red skin and hair colour of the slaughterers to be only caused by the redoak smoke.
Last week, Birnbaum and Rabbi Dr. Ari Greenspan, a shochet, educator and dentist, traveled to Ethiopia to oversee the examination process. In the presence of their families and fellow community members, the men all received certifications allowing them to act as halachically-approved ritual slaughterers.
Thousands of Jews live in Ethiopia, mostly in the city of Gondar and the capital of Addis Ababa, yet they lack many of the basic services and infrastructure that are available in larger communities, including a full-time kosher slaughterhouse. Though ritual slaughterers would occasionally visit Ethiopia, particularly before holidays to ensure a supply of kosher meat, this situation meant that many observant Jews in Ethiopia were forced to keep a vegetarian diet.

Jack Matusek is beautiful. He is wearing a cowboy hat, long brown hair, sometimes green cowboy boots, sometimes a jeans shirt. A soft face. There are many photos of him, because he is a blogging butcher, in English, it sounds as nice as it looks: blogging butcher. He has large pieces of meat in his hand, he shows swine-ear terrines, or how to rouse a whole animal. On his "Raw Republic Meats" page, he writes about his travels, where he wants to learn everything about the craft. The 26-year-old is the proof that even slaughterers can become pop stars today - it helps of course if they look like this.
But Glick, who lives in Otniel, a Modern Orthodox settlement in the West Bank, claims that this declaration of hope is half-hearted without practical preparations. So with the backing of some influential rabbis, he has contracted farmers to provide him with 300 sheep and goats for the sacrifice, should the Messiah arrive. He also put 20 slaughterers on standby; and, for those who wish to take part, but who live outside Jerusalem, he made Seder-night accommodations within walking distance of the Old City.
During World War II, most U.S. meatdisappeared into black markets. It was spirited there by a horde offly-by-night operators who popped up so fast that the number oflicensed slaughterers mushroomed from 4,500 to 20,000. "This time,"said Price Boss Mike DiSalle last week, "we're going to stop the blackmarkets before they start."
To stop them, DiSalle issued an order limiting slaughterers to existingoperators. He divided slaughterers into three classes: 1) the 450 majorslaughterers who ship in interstate commerce and have federal licenses,2) the 2,800 slaughterers and 12,000 butchers with state or locallicenses,...

The memorandum proceeds to explain the significance of Kashruth and points out that Jewish ritual slaughterers are no more than ordinary working slaughterers. It explains also the function of the Rabbis in the matter of Shechita and the reason why Jews pay specially for the provision of kosher meat. It gives an explanation of the place occupied in Jewish life by Mikvahs and Jewish cemeteries and of the reason why the Jewish cemeteries should be under the jurisdiction of the Jewish communities and not of the City Councils. The memorandum goes on to point out that among Jews there are no priests and that a Rabbi is nothing more than a teacher of the faith. The duties of the Rabbi are explained at length.
