If people see that vegan food can be healthy and tasty, they are more likely to consider a dietary change. The synagogue should be a place of education, where people can learn about the health benefits of going vegan.

Overall, this has been a very good project for our synagogue to explore an important way of eating that goes hand-in-hand with Kashrut and our mission of changing eating habits. We are excited to keep going with our programming.
