The vegetarian movement among Jews is spread throughou North America. Membership includes people in all walks of life. The group advocates a philosophy that goes beyond simply not eating meat.

The stated purpose of Jewish Vegetarians of North America "is to promote the practice of vegetarianism within the Judaic tradition, and to explore the relationship between Judaism, dietary laws, and vegetarianism."

They oppose hurting animals for any reason, whether for food or research. If you are interested in knowing more about membership and local events of Jewish Vegetarians of North America, which was founded in Baltimore about 10 years ago, contact Israel Mossman, (410) 754-5550.
