ג מִי שֶׁיּוֹדְעִין בּוֹ שֶׁאֵינוֹ יוֹדֵעַ הִלְכוֹת שְׁחִיטָה, אֲפִלּוּ שָׁחַט לְפָנֵינוּ ד’ אוֹ ה’ פְּעָמִים שְׁחִיטָה הֲגוּנָה וּרְאוּיָה, וְשָׁחַט אַחַר כָּךְ בֵּינוֹ לְבֵין עַצְמוֹ, שְׁחִיטָתוֹ פְּסוּלָה. אֲפִלּוּ שָׁאֲלוּ לוֹ: עָשִׂיתָ כָּךְ וְכָךְ, וּמִתּוֹךְ תְּשׁוּבָתוּ נִרְאֶה שֶׁשָּׁחַט כָּרָאוּי, אֵין לִסְמֹךְ עָלָיו, וַאֲפִלּוּ אָמַר: בָּרִי לִי שֶׁשָּׁחַטְתִּי יָפֶה. מִי שֶׁיּוֹדְעִים בּוֹ שֶׁאֵינוֹ יוֹדֵעַ הִלְכוֹת שְׁחִיטָה, יְכוֹלִים לִתֵּן לוֹ לִשְׁחֹט, אִם אַחֵר עוֹמֵד עַל גַּבָּיו, וּבִלְבַד שֶׁיִּרְאֶה אוֹתוֹ מִתְּחִלַּת שְׁחִיטָה עַד סוֹפָהּ.


Seif 3

Whoever doesn’t know the laws of Slaughter, even if he slaughters in the presence of others 4 or 5 times in the correct manner, and if he slaughtered alone, what he slaughtered is unacceptable. Even if he is asked: Did you slaughter in such and such manner and from his response we see that the slaughter was done correctly. We don’t rely on his words.

Even if he says “I am sure that I performed a good slaughter.

If someone knows that he doesn’t know the laws of slaughtering, he cannot slaughter alone,


If someone stands over him to see him from the beginning of the slaughtering till the end. (It would be allowed).
