You Can Do!
The most important single thing you can do is to stop eating animal products.
Becoming a vegetarian doesn’t mean just eating salad, of course. Foods like falafel,
vegetarian cholent, pasta primavera, bean burritos, and a whole world of Indian
and Asian cuisine are just the tip of a culinary universe for you to explore.
Spread the Word!
You can also help inform others about vegetarianism.

- Get your rabbi to introduce a resolution on Jewish vegetarianism at a rabbinic convention
- Or simply wear a button
or put a bumper sticker on your car!
