I propose that Jewish vegans and vegetarians join together to form a new, distinct Movement within Judaism. Since at least the 1960s there have been organizations that have promoted vegetarianism and veganism for Jewish people. However, none of these organizations became movements similar to the other movements of Judaism. I believe that if veganism or vegetarianism are ever going to win over a large portion of the Jewish population, an explicit philosophy of Jewish veganism and the creation of an identifiable Movement for Vegan Judaism must simultaneously work in tandem to win over more Jews to a vegan lifestyle. I therefore propose the following statements as guiding principles for the formation of Vegan and Vegetarian communities:
1. We respect the inherent worth of all sentient creatures and their right to life free of human inflicted suffering.
2. Killing sentient, non-human animals unnecessarily is immoral.
3. The harmful exploitation, abuse, and killing of non-human animals is unnecessary, and therefore unethical, in a post-industrial society in which people can easily live without animal products.
4. Veganism is not in conflict with traditional or modern Jewish law, tradition, belief, or practice.
5. A vegan lifestyle will facilitate the keeping of kashrut and promote Jewish ethics. Veganism is an ideal expressed in Jewish tradition as a means to be compassionate toward non-human animals; to respect the psychological, economic, and physical well-being of humans; and to keep kosher in accordance with Jewish law.
6. Veganism helps to fulfill the Jewish responsibility to care for the earth. Veganism promotes environmental responsibility and stewardship and has been shown to be ecologically sustainable and better for the environment than animal consumption.
7. A balanced vegan diet has been proven to be more healthy than an animal based diet for the vast majority of people, and thus adopting a vegan diet fulfills the Jewish commandment to “choose life” in more ways than one.
8. We believe in the right of conscience and the use of the democratic process in our communities. There will be no theological or dogmatic test for membership so long as the prospective member is a Jew who supports the vegan or vegetarian lifestyle.
9. We will accept one another and encourage one another as we practice a vegan lifestyle in accordance with our practice of Judaism.
10. We will promote a vegan lifestyle to our families, friends, acquaintances, and the larger Jewish community. Our veganism is an expression of our Judaism, and we believe that veganism is a proper expression of Jewish ethics, values, and tradition in the modern world.

Sweet Potato Latkes with Spiked Apple Sauce | Connoiseurus Veg
Celebrate fall with these vegan sweet potato latkes from Crossroads by Tal Ronnen. They’re a little sweet, a little savory, very decadent and served with a kicky brandy-spiked apple sauce.
Since tonight is the beginning of the Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashana) and it’s traditional to eat apples and honey, I though I’d share this simple dessert recipe from the book, which was a favorite on my blog: an Apple & Honey Galette (or Appel & Honing Taart or Apfel-Honig-Galette!)
Enjoy and Shana Tova!

Srila Prabodhananda Saraswati: “To those who tolerate thousands of abusive words, millions of the humiliating insults of ruffians, millions of [bodily] miseries caused due to lack of proper food, clothing or shelter, and also tolerate extreme mental despair caused due to the anguish inflicted by lust, etc. — to those who stay in this sporting ground of Krishna, tolerating all these, I offer my obeisances.”

Thanksgiving at Govinda’s Tucson
Dana-Keli Devi Dasi: Thanksgiving on Govinda’s patio (Tucson, Az.) with music by Gangamantri and Dhiro Datta Prabhu was a heart warming and splendid affair. I arrived shortly before noon when the event began and already there was a long line of enthusiastic folks waiting for the doors to open. The buffet, set with a colorful and healthy array of vegetarian and vegan delights, was an excellent offering from Sandamini devi who has created and managed these great events for over 25 years. A seasoned old Tom turkey roamed freely on the patio, while the musicians warmed to their craft and began to play the songs we loved the most. The bird, Tom, who had been a cherished guest at Govinda’s stood stark still when the diners realized what an excellent photo opportunity they could have. How inspiring to see on Facebook or other news feeds people enjoying a vegetarian Thanksgiving feast while associating with a live Turkey!
On the patio that perfect afternoon, when Gangamantri and Dhiro Datta played George Harrison’s My Sweet Lord, a few of us ladies could not resist raising our arms in the loving glory of the Lord and expressing our gratitude at that moment when happiness, faith, and vision simultaneously occur.
I had a conversation with a man, who was a professional musician and had been coming to Govinda’s Cruelty-Free Thanksgiving festivals for many years. He gave thanks to Sandamini Devi for her dedication to the community and her ability to orchestrate the event with so much dignity. We both agreed that the patio of Govinda’s held the most elevated Thanksgiving in Tucson or perhaps anyplace in America. HARE KRISHNA
