The Jewish Initiative for Animals supports innovative programs to turn the Jewish value of compassion for animals into action while building ethical and sustainable Jewish American communities in the process.

We pursue this work through:

  • Education: We collaborate with Jewish nonprofit organizations—including camps, synagogues, youth groups, community centers, schools, college programs, and more—to produce educational resources that will spark inquiry into how Jewish values should interact with how we treat animals.
  • Expert Consultation: We provide expert consultation to Jewish institutions to assist them in reducing meat consumption and replacing factory-farmed animal products with more sustainable alternatives.

Join our mailing list to receive updates that will keep you involved as hundreds of organizations commit to put animal welfare on the Jewish agenda. You can also follow us on FacebookInstagram, X, and Threads to stay up to date on ways to bring Jewish values into everyday life through ethical eating.
