Go veggie — get a book

The Jewish Chronicle - - Community -

THE JEWISH Veg­e­tar­ian So­ci­ety is of­fer­ing an in­cen­tive to meat-eaters to try a veggie diet for a month or more.

JVS ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor Suzanne Barnard says the first 100 non-veg­e­tar­i­ans to take the pledge will be sent a copy of Rose Fried­man’s Jewish Veg­e­tar­ian Cook­ing, fea­tur­ing recipes such as mock gefilte fish and stuffed aubergines and goulash with potato knei­d­lach. Ad­vice about din­ing out will also be pro­vided.

Ms Barnard noted that Jewish law re­quired peo­ple to show kind­ness to an­i­mals, pro­tect the en­vi­ron­ment and con­serve nat­u­ral re­sources, com­mit­ments in line with veg­e­tar­i­an­ism.

“We need to be aware of the re­al­i­ties of the global meat in­dus­try”, she said. “It is our re­spon­si­bil­ity to ap­ply Jewish teach­ings to how we ob­tain our food and use nat­u­ral re­sources.”
