חֵרֵשׁ שֶׁאֵינוֹ שׁוֹמֵעַ וְאֵינוֹ מְדַבֵּר, וְשׁוֹטֶה, דְּהַיְנוּ שֶׁהוּא יוֹצֵא יְחִידִי בַּלַּיְלָה, אוֹ מְקָרֵעַ כְּסוּתוֹ, אוֹ לָן בְּבֵית הַקְּבָרוֹת, אוֹ מְאַבֵּד מַה שֶּׁנּוֹתְנִים לוֹ, אֲפִלּוּ בְּאַחַת מֵאֵלּוּ, אִם עוֹשֶׂה אוֹתוֹ דֶּרֶךְ שְׁטוּת, וְקָטָן שֶׁאֵינוֹ יוֹדֵעַ לְאַמֵּן יָדָיו לִשְׁחֹט, אֵין מוֹסְרִין לָהֶם לִשְׁחֹט לְכַתְּחִלָּה, אֲפִלּוּ אֲחֵרִים עוֹמְדִים עַל גַּבֵּיהֶם. וְאִם שָׁחֲטוּ, שְׁחִיטָתָן כְּשֵׁרָה אִם אֲחֵרִים עוֹמְדִים עַל גַּבֵּיהֶם. וְאֵין מוֹסְרִין לָהֶם לְכַתְּחִלָּה לִשְׁחֹט כְּשֶׁאֵין אֲחֵרִים עוֹמְדִים עַל גַּבֵּיהֶם, אֲפִלּוּ אִם רוֹצִים לְהַאֲכִיל לִכְלָבִים. וְאִם הַקָּטָן יוֹדֵעַ לְאַמֵּן יָדָיו, אִם אֲחֵרִים עוֹמְדִים עַל גַּבָּיו, שׁוֹחֵט לְכַתְּחִלָּה וּמֻתָּר לֶאֱכֹל מִשְּׁחִיטָתוֹ.


Seif 5

A deaf person who cannot hear and cannot speak or an imbecile, in other words someone who cannot go outside alone at night or who has ripped garments or who frequents cemeteries or loses things that are given to him even one of these things or conducts himself in a silly manner or a child that doesn’t have a trained hand to slaughter we should not allow them to slaughter from the outset even if there is someone standing over them helping them.

But if they slaughter (after the fact) their slaughter is kosher if there is a trained individual standing over them.

However we should not allow them to slaughter from the outset without a trained individual standing over them. Even if he wants to feed the dogs.


However if the child has a trained hand and a trained individual is standing over him he can slaughter from the outset and everyone is allowed to eat what he slaughters.
