Introducing Dr. Richard
Dr. Richard Schwartz argues that Jewish values mandate vegetarianism.
Dr. Schwartz discusses the Jewish mandates to protect ones health,
respect the environment, show compassion for animals, promote peace,
and eradicate poverty, arguing that each of these values, put into
practice, requires vegetarianism, and that all of them together make
an unassailable case for Jewish vegetarianism.
Dr. Schwartz is Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at the College of
Staten Island and the author of multiple books, including the recently
reissued Judaism and Vegetarianism (Lantern).
An introduction to Dr. Schwartzs analysis is offered by Rabbi
David Rosen, former Chief Rabbi of Ireland (1978 to 1985) and presently
the President of both the International Council of Christians and
Jews and the World Conference on Religion and Peace.
