My colleagues and I love Richard Schwartz, the president of Jewish Vegetarians of North America, who writes a column or letter to the editor each week and is never at a loss to attach his cause to the latest headline. Here’s his latest.
JEWISH GROUP CONGRATULATES TZIPI LIVNI, POTENTIALLY ISRAEL’S FIRST VEGETARIAN PRIME MINISTER
We congratulate vegetarian and animal-lover Tzipi Livni for winning the Kadima primary, which would make her Israel’s first vegetarian prime minister, if she is able to form a government..
We urge Ms. Livni, should she become prime minister, to make it a major priority of her administration to help increase awareness of the many reasons for considering a shift toward vegetarian (and preferably vegan) diets.
Next week: “When you’re fasting on Yom Kippur, try to not not eat meat.”
