Horse racing already exists in Israel in a very small way, but there are plans to expand the races to include as many as 2,000 horses and to launch gambling on the races. As experience in England and the U.S. has shown, when gambling is involved, the welfare of the horses is sacrificed. The racing industry is built on the exploitation of animals, and cruelty and abuse are commonplace.

 

Religious Knesset members in Israel are opposed to gambling of any kind because Judaism is against the practice, saying that it causes one person to receive money to the detriment of another. The lure of huge profits has blinded the majority, however, who are intent on making it legal. We urgently need to educate lawmakers, and also the public, about the existing problem of horse abuse in Israel and how it will be multiplied tenfold if gambling on racing is legalized.
