Jewish sacred documents are typically made using the skin of animals. What options might there be for vegans hoping to observe the mitzvot (commandments) of tefillin and mezuzot? Is there such a thing as a vegan Torah scroll? What about Ketubot (marriage documents) or Gittin (divorice documents)? Inspired by this article, Kohenet Yael Tischler will interview Soferet Avielah Barclay about all available options. There will be an opportunity for guests to ask Avielah their questions, too.
