Yoreh Deah Siman 4 Seif 5



הַשּׁוֹחֵט לְשֵׁם הָרִים וּגְבָעוֹת, לְשֵׁם חַמָּה וּלְבָנָה, כּוֹכָבִים וּמַזָּלוֹת, יַמִּים וּנְהָרוֹת, אֵין לוֹ דִּין תִּקְרֹבֶת עֲבוֹדָה זָרָה לְאָסְרָהּ בַּהֲנָאָה, אֲבָל שְׁחִיטָתוֹ פְּסוּלָה, אַף עַל פִּי שֶׁלֹּא נִתְכַּוֵּן לְעָבְדָּהּ אֶלָּא לִרְפוּאָה וְכַיּוֹצֵא בָּהּ מִדִּבְרֵי הֲבַאי שֶׁאוֹמְרִים הָכּוּתִים.


Seif 5

One who slaughters for the sake of hills or mountains, or for the sake of the sun or the moon, stars or constellations, oceans or rivers, it does not have the status of an item which was offered as an idolatrous sacrifice, therefore it is not prohibited to derive benefit from this meat, however the slaughter is invalidated, even though he did not intend to worship but to heal or some other practice derived from the meaningless superstitions the Samaritans speak about.
