New Film From Jewish Vegetarians of North America

Written by PETA | March 11, 2008

Hey, everyone! I wanted to tell y’all about A Sacred Duty: Applying Jewish Values to Help Heal the World, a new documentary by the Jewish Vegetarians of North America (JVNA). The film has several scenes depicting very powerful footage of animal suffering. According to JVNA’s Web site, A Sacred Duty reminds viewers that it is “our responsibility to apply Jewish teachings to how we obtain our food, use natural resources, and live among other creatures whom God created. It offers simple, practical measures for reducing our impact on the planet.”

JVNA is offering free DVD copies of A Sacred Duty to religious groups, educational institutions, environmental organizations, cultural clubs, the media, Jewish film festivals, and others who will arrange showings. Click here to contact JVNA and request a copy.

You can view the film in its entirety online. Check it out here.

Thanks, JVNA, for showing everyone that the suffering of animals raised for food should be taken into account by those concerned about the environment and for reminding people about Jewish values of compassion for animals.

Love,Christine <3

    What a great opportunity to order a copy to show to members of your temple followed by an enlightening conversation afterwards.

    I’ve “talked” to Dr. Richard Schwartz of JVNA a few times by email. He struck me as a very kind man and he certainly has an eloquent way of expressing himself. We’re lucky to have a man of his calibre and compassion on board.
