Guide for Jewish Institutional Food Sourcing


The Jewish Initiative for Animals (JIFA) offers free consultation to Jewish institutions around making better food choices. 

In late 2019 JIFA launched a new program called the Jewish Leadership Circle (JLC):

With JIFA’s support, institutions on the JLC’s Plant-Forward track commit to reducing their overall animal product consumption by 20% within two years and gain recognition for this practice within their congregation and surrounding communities. JIFA also offers free educational resources to host events, discussions, movie screenings and more with your community about factory farming, food justice, and aligning food choices with Jewish values.
