In spite of the perception that the Jewish holidays are to be celebrated by eating meat, there has always been a vibrant vegetarian tradition in Judaism. This booklet traces both traditions of eating meat and vegetarianism, and argues that a vegetarian Simchat Yom Tov is more relevant to Jewish ethics and values. There is no blessing for meat in Judaism, but there are many blessings for vegetables.
