New book promotes vegetarianism, animal rights, environmental activism, and more....
A new book, 'Who Stole My Religion? Revitalizing Judaism and Applying Jewish Values to Help Heal Our Imperiled Planet', has just been published.
It was written by Professor Emeritus Richard H, Schwartz, Ph.D., president of Jewish Vegetarians of North America and author of Judaism and Vegetarianism and Judaism and Global Survival, along with Breslov Hasid Rabbi Yonassan Gershom. The book is meant, among other things, to be a wake-up call to Jews and others to apply religious values to help avoid impending climate, food, energy, and water catastrophes.
While it argues strongly that Jews and others should be vegetarians (and preferably vegans), it is completely independent of Jewish Vegetarians of North America (JVNA).
Because the issues are so urgent, Dr. Schwartz is letting people know that the eBook version (which has the advantage of having the pictures in color) can be read by visiting http://www.box.com/s/2508ypqz2l207nvsxbga , and clicking on the download box.
The book discusses many controversial topics so the authors do not expect anyone to agree with every position in it. However, it is very positive on Jewish teachings and aims to start respectful dialogues that will help to, among other things, help shift our imperiled, conflict-filled world to a more compassionate, humane, just, peaceful, and environmentally sustainable path.
Further information about the book, including questions and answers about it and how one can order the print or Ebook versions, can be found at http://whostolemyreligion.com/
