Lionel Friedberg, will be presented. The film is a response to
global warming showing how religious responses can make a major
difference and how a plant-based diet is an essential part of any
effort to reduce global climate change and other environmental
threats. It also challenges people to consider the many moral issues
related to our diets. Although it was produced for a Jewish
audience, it speaks to people everywhere about the ethics of our
relationship to the natural world in which we live. SFVS does not
endorse any religion but the documentary also contains secular
interviews and information relevant to our environment.
Dan Brook, Ph.D., sociology instructor at San Jose State University,
and SFVS member, will make a presentation before and after the film.
