(IL) A vegan affair: Independence Day without meat
- [Jerusalem Post]
Several hundred Israelis reject meat and hold a vegan barbeque organized by
the Vegan Friendly Israel organization in Tel Aviv.
In what has become a yearly Independence Day tradition, millions of
Israelis celebrated Israel�s 65th birthday grilling meats on Tuesday but a
few hundred decided to reject the meat and hold a vegan barbecue in Tel
Aviv�s Yarkon Park instead.
The barbecue was organized by Vegan Friendly Israel, an arm of the
non-profit Organization for a Vegan Future. Vegan Friendly works with
restaurants to increase their vegan options. Restaurants that increase
these choices can get a certificate of vegan friendliness from the
�Vegan Friendly Israel�s slogan is to change reality,� Omri Paz, the head
of Vegan Friendly and organizer of the event, told The Jerusalem Post.
