"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)


Vegetarian 'Intermarriages'

The current issue of the Washington Jewish Week features an article titled "Culinary Intermarriage" that delves into the topic of Jewish married couples that consist of one vegetarian and one meat-eater. The article features firsthand accounts from a variety of such couples.

The article provides a Jewish take on what's become a common theme of late. The day before Valentine's Day, both the San Francisco Chronicle and The New York Times featured articles about "mixed relationships" from a dietary perspective. The Washington Jewish Week article comes on the heels of a spirited debate that discussed both vegetarianism and actual intermarriage in response to last week's The Jew & The Carrot post about the upcoming film Kosher Vegetarian.
