Norfolk, Va – With Passover just around the corner, PETA is encouraging celebrants to replace the animal foods often found on the Seder table with delicious, healthy, and humane vegan dishes, including Matzoh Ball Soup, Gefilte “Fish,” Rainbow Israeli Salad, Chopped “Liver” Spread, Potato Kugels, and, for dessert, decadent Chocolate Matzo Brittle (recipes available here). And in this PETA video, Emmy-nominated comedy writer Carol Leifer offers even more advice on preparing a beautiful Passover table that’s respectful to all.

“Passover celebrates freedom and reminds us to have compassion for others who are oppressed, so it’s only right to keep animals and the products of their suffering off the Seder table by serving flavorful vegan dishes instead,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA’s time-tested vegan recipes are a wonderful resource for anyone looking to help animals, the planet, and their own health.”

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—notes that every person who goes vegan spares more than 100 animals a year daily suffering and a terrifying death in today’s meat, egg, and dairy industries. In addition, a report by the United Nations concluded that a global switch to vegan eating is vital if we are to combat the worst effects of climate change.

PETA offers a free vegan starter kit containing recipes, tips on dining out, and more. For more information, please visit

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
