Food for the Gods : Vegetarianism & the World's Religions
by Rynn Berry 5/98
Rynn Berry's Food for the Gods does a remarkable job of tracing the vegetarian link in the major religions of Hindiusm, Buddhism, Judaism, and Islam, and Catholicism, but also to the relatively small but intriguing non-violent religions of India's Jainism and the British Order of the Cross. The history of religion will never look the same after reading this book.

Judaism and Vegetarianism by Richard Schwartz: From God's first injunction, "Behold, I have given you every herb yielding seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed, to you it shall be for food." (Gen. 1:29) The Hebrew Bible offers countless examples of how God intends a compassionate and caring attitude toward animals, our health, and the health of the planet. This attitude, as Richard Schwartz shows in his pioneering work now fully revised, has been a constant theme throughout Judaism to the present day.

Isaac Bashevis Singer short stories: The forty-seven stories in this collection, selected by Singer himself out of nearly one hundred and fifty, range from the publication of his now-classic first collection, Gimpel the Fool, in 1957, until 1981. They include supernatural tales, slices of life from Warsaw and the shtetls of Eastern Europe, and stories of the Jews displaced from that world to the New World, from the East Side of New York to California and Miami.

Animal Suffering and the Holocaust: The Problem with Comparisons
Paperback – September 1, 2003 by Roberta Kalechofsky (Author)
Animal Suffering and the Holocaust by Roberta Kalechofsky: This book is a response to PETA campaign, "Holocaust on Your Plate." The author is an animal rights activist, but objects to comparison of Holocaust with animal suffering on the grounds that the Holocaust was the result of complex and religious forces which PETA's campaign cannot address. Also, photographs have limited efficacy in explaining complex matters.

Rabbis and Vegetarianism by Roberta Kalechofsky: Essays by and about 17 rabbis show inconsistencies between basic Jewish teachings and the realities of modern meat production and consumption. The rabbis in the anthology are a varied group: Orthodox, Conservative, Reform, and Reconstructionist; male and female; modern and from previous generations; recent converts to vegetarianism as well as long-time proponents. They also use a variety of arguments, all based on Jewish values: preserving health; showing compassion to animals; protecting the environment; and sharing with hungry people.

Eternal Treblinka: Our Treatment of Animals and the Holocaust, by Charles Patterson, Ph.D.: Eternal Treblinka describes disturbing parallels between how the Nazis treated their victims and how modern society treats animals. The title is taken from the Yiddish writer and Nobel Laureate Isaac Bashevis Singer, himself a vegetarian: "In relation to them, all people are Nazis; for the animals it is an eternal Treblinka."

The Soul of Jewish Social Justice by Rabbi Shmuly Yanklowitz: The Soul of Jewish Social Justice offers a novel intellectual and spiritual approach for how Jewish wisdom must be relevant and transformational in its application to the most pressing moral problems of our time. The book explores how spirituality, ritual, narratives, holidays, and tradition can enhance one's commitment to creating a more just society. Readers will discover how the Jewish social justice ethos can help address issues of education reform, ethical consumption, the future of Israel, immigration, prison reform, violence, and business ethics.
