Yoreh Deah Siman 2 Seif 3


מוּמָר לְתֵאָבוֹן שֶׁשָּׁחַט, אֲפִלּוּ נִשְׁבַּע, שֶׁשָּׁחַט בְּסַכִּין יָפָה, אֵינוֹ נֶאֱמָן.

A wanton sinner * who intends to slaughter, even if he swears that he slaughtered with a good knife he is not believed.

*carcass of a kosher animal not killed in accordance with Jewish law and therefore forbidden for consumption.


**a ”mumar leteiavon” does not mean an apostate, it means a wanton sinner who sins out of lust or desire, not out of heresy.
