Vegetarianism > Veganism
ShalomVeg.com was created in 2007 as a resource for the Jewish vegetarian, animal rights and environmental community. In recent years there has been a resurgence of interest in examining the connections between our eating habits, our health, ethics, the environment and social justice--and the Jewish world has been no exception. There have been books, documentary movies, blogs and conferences relating to these important connections, along with the few organizations devoted to the issues. However, there was a definite need for a place to bring the entire community together, a place where visitors could learn, interact, and become active all in one convenient location. So Shalomveg.com was born.
In today's world, vegetarianism is a path that can help heal the world, bring us closer together as a community, and build more connections with all life on earth. As the wise "rebbe" Albert Einstein once said:
Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature.
May we all be blessed with the compassion and strength to help heal the world, and may we all move closer together to live in harmony with all life.
