"I've noticed that quite a lot of people who are prominent in the animal liberation movement are Jews. Maybe we are simply not prepared to see the powerful hurting the weak." --Peter Singer (Author, Animal Liberation)


A Post in the Key of Random

I haven't posted much lately, but there actually are some big posts in the works for the coming months! (And I drafted two different Hanukkah posts that failed to materialize for a variety of a reasons.)

Vegan Jews Against Genocide
A year and a half after Vegan Jews Against Genocide attended a Save Darfur rally (click here to read my blog post about it), a photo of our ad hoc trio has appeared in the New Jersey Jewish News. Amusingly, the article is titled "People for the Ethical Treatment of Humans" and the photo bears the caption "Can Jewish political impulses be reconciled with religious injunctions?" The paper has several other articles with a "You Are What You Eat? New Jewish Views on Food" focus this week.

Kvetchin' in the Kitchen
Earlier this week, I made a tofu scramble without matzoh for the first time in ages. It just didn't taste right. It seems that I've become conditioned to turning tofu scramble into vegan—albeit kitniyot-laden—matzoh brie.

New Term for Vegetarian Jews
I'd like to take credit for coining the terms "heebnvegan" and "herbivorous heebs," but I just found out about an amazing new term: "vego yiddin." It's from a song on Yidcore's CD They Tried to Kill Us. They Failed. Let's Eat! (I'll probably save the review for when the album drops in the U.S.) Yidcore frontman Bram Presser was featured in my post about vegetarian Jewish punk rockers; perhaps that's what inspired him?
