Shifting Toward a Plant -Forward Diet
1) We are holding monthly zoom vegan shabbat meals created by our caterer, bought by our members and shared online before services. Our goal is to introduce our members to the environmental, ethical and health benefits of eating a plant-forward diet. We have a guest speaker each month. During the last 2 Shabbat dinners, we focused on explaining and encouraging our members to join the Temple Solel group for the Brit Hazon. Becky O'Brien spoke at one of these dinners. 2) We will be holding an Vegan international cooking demonstration series beginning February 21, with Vietnamese food, followed by an Israeli vegan cooking demo on March 21, and an Italian vegan cooking demo on April 25th. 3) We watched the movie "Game Changers" together, shared a vegan dessert, and discussed the movie. It was eye-opening for most of us, and one of our attendees was a registered dietician who was able to answer many of our questions 4) We got a grant from Shamayim, which is helping us with some of these projects.
