New Vegan Resource Launches

Actress and activist Mayim Bialik has launched a center for kosher vegans.

Mayim Bialik, the actress best known for her roles on hit television shows including Blossom and The Big Bang Theory, has launched a new center for Jewish vegans. Bialik herself keeps kosher, and has found a deep connection between her faith and the role of veganism in her life. The Shamayim V’Aretz Institute (the name means “heaven and earth” in Hebrew) is led by Bialik, Rabbi Shmuly Yanklowitz, author Jana Kohl, and musician Matisyahu. The center will host its first retreat in June, and has released a video called “Stuff Kosher Meat Eaters Say To Kosher Vegans,” hopping on the popular meme.
