Israel is Going Vegan Crazy, Holds First Vegan Congress!

Vegan Israel
When it comes to veganism and vegan-friendly culture, Israel is leading the pack while the rest of the world struggles to keep up. Initially, the big story was that the Domino's Pizza chain opted to present its vegan pizza option in Israel. Domino's vegan pizza is not available anywhere else on earth. And now, Israel hosted over 600 people in its first ever Vegan Congress on March 7th of this year.

After discussing matters at the Congress, members of the Vegan-Friendly group plan to drive a “Vegan-Mobile” around the country. They’ll park at a different major city each month to screen videos about veganism and offer various activities for people to learn about the health, environmental, and animal-welfare benefits of maintaining a plant-based diet.

Also, the group plans to have a vegan barbecue (or mangal) on Israel Independence Day as well as a Shavout festival, traditionally associated with eating dairy foods, without cheese. Israelis came out in droves for the last festival: about 10,000 strong.

In addition to discussions about grand plans of furthering the vegan frenzy in Israel, a barbecue for Israel's Independence Day celebration and a vegan mobile, offering information and activities related to veganism as it drives from city to city in Israel were planned with exuberance.

Israeli vegans seek to focus on the positive side of veganism as opposed to the oft cited violence and gore commonly used among vegan groups to steer people away from animal-centric diets.

Israel just might be the easiest country in the world to be vegan.
