From Animals in Print 7 February 2001 Issue:

IT’S UP TO US:
PROMOTING JEWISH VEGETARIANISM

Shalom everyone, I am planning a major campaign to get Judaism onto the Jewish agenda and onto the agendas of other groups, built around the publication of a new edition of my book, "Judaism and Vegetarianism" around March 2001. As indicated previously, I believe this campaign is urgent because it is becoming increasingly clear that a shift toward vegetarianism is both a societal imperative, because of the many negative effects of animal-based agriculture and diets, and a Jewish imperative because of the contradictions between basic Jewish values and the realities of the production and consumption of animal products. I plan to utilize every opportunity to get these messages and many more to as wide an audience as possible.

While this campaign is extremely important, I recognize my limitations and the powerful forces that we are up again. Hence, I am encouraged by the existence of several Jewish vegetarian and animal rights groups that have already been diligently working on promoting vegetarianism and animal rights (I hope to focus on these groups in an upcoming message) and the many dedicated people on this list. Your comments and suggestions as this campaign develops will be most welcome. I plan to utilize the great wisdom and creativity that exists among us by sending out messages focusing on various aspects of this campaign periodically and seeking your input. (Incidentally, if you prefer for any reason not to receive further messages re this campaign and other vegetarian-related matters, please let me know and I will take you off the list, no questions asked; on the other hand, if you know others who might be interested, please let me know their e-mail addresses or forward any messages you wish to them.)

At this organizing stage, what would be most helpful is if you could let me know of any media contacts, potential reviewers, possible review sources that you are aware of, since a major part of this campaign will be trying to get reviews, articles, and media interviews. If you would like to be a reviewer, please let me know, and indicate a little about your background, if I am not familiar with it. Many thanks. L’shalom, Richard
