Animals Merit Our Moral Consideration

The vast majority of cows are confined to unsanitary feed lots, deprived of room to roam and the ability to graze, and fed an unnatural mixture of corn and antibiotics.

From the Warsaw Ghetto to a Life of Compassion:

Alex Hershaft's Inspiring Story

Alex Hershaft is one of the few remaining voices who can personally and vividly attest to the experiences of the Holocaust.
And he is one of the only such voices who can undeniably relate that experience to the plight of farm animals.
Recently named by VegNews Magazine as one of the four most important figures in the history of the veg-advocacy movement, Alex has told his dramatic story in front of large crowds in Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Pittsburgh. But this will be the first, and perhaps, only opportunity to hear his unforgettable presentation in New York City.
Tickets include:
  • A reception with delicious vegan hors d'oeuvres, with vegan desserts afterward.
  • A major annoucement and sneak preview of a new initiative by Jewish Veg.
  • Alex's incredible presentation about his moral evolution from Holocaust survivor to farm-animal advocate.
This early-bird discount is available for a short time only. Tickets will be going up to $36.
