520    "Jewish vegan and vegetarian movements have become 
       increasingly prominent in recent decades, as more Jews 
       adopt plant-based lifestyles. In this book, scholars, 
       rabbis, and activists explore the history of veganism and 
       vegetarianism among Jews and present compelling new 
       directions in Jewish thought, ethics, and foodways. Jewish
       Veganism and Vegetarianism asks how Judaism, broadly 
       considered, has inspired people to eschew animal products 
       and how those choices have enriched and defined 
       Jewishness. It offers opportunities to meditate on what 
       makes Jewish veganism and vegetarianism particularly 
       Jewish and to pursue the intellectual, religious, and 
       historical roots of those movements. It also tests their 
       boundaries, examines connections to other movements, and 
       calls attention to divisions among Jewish vegans and 
       vegetarians and to the resistance they have faced. In part
       one, "Studies," authors present Jewish veganism and 
       vegetarianism in historical, literary, and sociological 
       context: from the time of the Talmud until the present, in
       North America, Europe, and Israel, and among rabbis, chefs,
       artists, activists, punks, and farmers. Part two, "New 
       Directions," is focused on contemporary currents in Jewish
       vegan and vegetarian thought. The authors represent the 
       cultural, theological, and ideological diversity among 
       Jews invested in such conversations and introduce 
       prominent debates within their movements. As a whole, the 
       volume presents a wide-ranging survey of the place of 
       veganism and vegetarianism in Judaism past and present"--
