Jewish Veg Speaker

Monday, February 22, 2021 10 Adar 5781

6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Why was Esther a vegetarian in the court of King Ahasuerus? Taking this midrash as a launching point, we will examine the Jewish case for veganism from a legal and ethical perspective. What is the purpose of the kosher laws? How does the concept of tza'ar baalei chayim translate to 21st century consumption? Join us for a workshop and discussion on how Judaism teaches us to live well and wisely in practicing mindfulness around what we eat.

Sara Eifler is the Program Director of Jewish Veg, a national nonprofit that inspires and assists Jews to adopt plant-based diets as an expression of Jewish values. She is also a current rabbinical student.
