Chesed & Hummus: A Veg Collective

There is an old Jewish saying: “Eat that you may live!” Of course, what you eat profoundly affects your lifestyle on a daily basis. This has prompted many Jewish scholars to argue that the Torah promotes a vegetarian diet to better one’s health, to protect the environment, and to show compassion toward animals.

Through a variety of ancient, contemporary, religious, and secular Jewish texts, this collective explores the intersection of Judaism and vegetarianism. Enjoy plant-based snacks while discussing topics ranging from the meaning of Adam and Eve’s vegan diet in the Garden of Eden to why Israel has recently been dubbed “the promised land for vegans.”
