An Amish Eid Al-Adha

An email anecdote from a colleague about this Friday's Islamic holiday:
    One of my students reported buying his sheep at an Amish farm which seems to be nicely networked with the Muslim community. He went there this weekend, paid for his sheep, left it there, and will go there on Friday to conduct the sacrifice himself and butcher it himself. Cash on the barrelhead, apparently. He loves the simplicity of that farm community and the modesty of dress… "like my village at home."
