A vegan Passover seder, or “veder”

Last year I sent Jewish media a pitch about our second vegan Passover seder. My hope was that I would be able to get some attention for ethical veganism around the holiday. Our veder made it in an article in The Jewish Journal and they also asked me to write an article for them.

I decided to send a pitch this year, and received quite a lot of responses. I was interviewed for a blog based in Vienna called Living Jewish (hope you read German) and by a journalist from a London-based publication called The Jewish Chronicle. So many opportunities to contribute articles came in that I had to pass up a few.

After writing three articles, I realized that I would be unable to say the same thing differently two more times. Here are my three articles all in one place. Please feel free to share them with friends and family.

It’s an honor to represent ethical veganism to an audience that is ostensibly receptive to concepts like exploitation and enslavement. I encourage other activists to look for similar opportunities to express their ethical and spiritual values around major holidays. (Plus, the food is great.)

    Hello,

    My name is Joe Leeson-Schatz and I’m the North American Representative for the Institute of Critical Animal Studies (http://www.criticalanimalstudies.org/). I’m currently spear heading a campaign against Ag Gag laws, which makes exposing the horrors of factory farms illegal instead of the abuse itself. I’m writing to ask for your help in promoting awareness.

    We’ve started a federal petition to urge the end of these regressive laws that target activists instead of those responsible for the abuses. If you could please sign and share the link with everyone you know and on your blog, facebook, twitter, and anywhere else that would be greatly appreciated.

    The petition can be found at-https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/criminalize-ag-gag-laws/KQWSvsKr
