What we do
JVS is an international charity dedicated to promoting a kinder world, without killing animals for food.
We spread awareness of the benefits of rejecting cruelty to animals and the extension of this to an improved society where mankind is not cruel to fellow beings, both human and animals. These sentiments are expressed in the Torah, which teaches kindness to all sentient creatures and in the Talmud where it is stated that “the earth is the L-rd’s” and that we are to be partners with G-d in preserving the world.
