JVS is an international charity, dedicated to promoting a kinder society, without killing animals for food, where mankind is not cruel to fellow beings, both human and animal, as expressed in the Torah.

We advocate a vegetarian world which protects the environment, promotes human health and conserves natural resources. As well as offering information and support to people who are interested in learning about the many benefits of vegetarianism and veganism, we also host an array of events and produce a quarterly magazine.  We welcome vegetarians, vegans and non-vegetarians. All of our events are 100% vegan. Click here to join our community.
