Is Israel banning the trade of animal furs a good thing ?
Israel on Wednesday banned the trade in animal fur for fashion by ministerial decree, becoming the first country to pass such strict legislation, the environment ministry said. “The trade in animal fur, import and export, will be banned except for the needs of research, education and certain religious traditions,” said the ministry in a statement, specifying that the ban will come into force in six months . The use of fur, ritually used for the “Schtreimel”, this real fur hat worn by some ultra-Orthodox Jews, therefore remains authorized.
