A Sacred Duty is a new film by The Jewish Vegetarians of North America. It highlights the ethics of our relationship to the natural world in which we live. Its universal message will appeal to anyone interested in such topics as religion, vegetarianism, the environment, health, nutrition, hunger, resource usage and collaboration to help heal our planet.

Why is it that many Jewish religious leaders advocate vegetarianism, including Chief Rabbi of Britain Jonathan Sacks, late Chief Rabbi of Israel Shlomo Goren, and the first Chief Rabbi of pre-state Israel Abraham Kook?
Why is it that the former Chief Rabbi of Ireland David Rosen considers "the consumption of meat as halachically unacceptable"?
The Torah is full of commandments demanding humane treatment of animals, yet the modern factory farms that produce over 90% of the animal products we consume today raise their animals in unconscionable conditions of abject misery. The Torah reflects great concern for the land, yet as the primary cause of water pollution, water use, topsoil erosion, destruction of the world's rainforest, Generic Levitra and other environmental harms, animal agriculture takes a devastating toll on the planet. Jewish teachings emphasize the grave importance of protecting human health, yet the consumption of animal products in the United States is responsible for numerous diseases including heart disease, America's number one killer. Judaism places great concern on providing for the poor and the hungry, yet while 800 million people do not have enough food to sustain themselves, our carnivorous diets are at least ten times as wasteful of food resources as a vegetarian one.
Please read and learn about the growing Jewish vegetarian movement, and think about how Jewish teachings relate to decisions we make everyday as we sit down to eat. As Rabbi Isaac ha-Levi Herzog said, "Jews will move increasingly to vegetarianism out of their own deepening knowledge of what their tradition commands... A whole galaxy of central rabbinic and spiritual leaders...has been affirming vegetarianism as the ultimate meaning of Jewish moral teaching."

Let me count the ways! Given that the vast majority of the US GDP (and Australia's) will be spent on health care and security, having a good diet will reduce that burden and free up public funds for environmental technology.
By reducing your meat intake you are reducing the number of animals on the planet which, like us, produce greenhouse gases, require transport and (unlike us) require refrigeration to avoid contamination once the animals are killed for their flesh.
Quite apart from the environmental considerations, the amount of suffering caused to animals in modern agriculture is unimaginable.
By opting out of the meat culture (and even eggs and dairy) you are making a very great contribution.
How do i make the pictures on my youtube videos not so blurry? Well I make youtube music videos on Windows Movie Maker but when i put the pictures (that i get from google) onto the video, they blow up and get all blurry-ew. I've seen lots of people with youtube videos that have pictures that are perfectly clear. How do they do that?
