Mazal Tov to Yale Hillel

Congratulations to Yale Hillel, the newest member of the Jewish Initiative for Animals’ Jewish Leadership Circle. The Joseph Slifka Center for Jewish Life (Yale Hillel) was recognized for meeting the requirements of the Jewish Leadership Circles' Animal Welfare track by sourcing certified higher welfare eggs.

“The staff and students remain committed to advancing more sustainable practices through the food they serve. We are heartened by institutions' dedication to building a healthier food system and a more resilient Jewish community, especially during this difficult and disruptive time,” stated the Jewish Initiative for Animals on its Facebook page.

“It is wonderful to share this news and let other Greater New Haven organizations, shuls and agencies that prepare or arrange food know that they too can take this important step to align our food choices with our Jewish values through the JLC program; it’s easy to do and a really special opportunity for our community to be models in a way our world needs now more than ever,” says Josh Weinstein, “As it becomes clearer that our relationship to the environment and animals really matters in the public health conversation, there is an opportunity to lay more groundwork during this time as we all look ahead together.”
