This paper argues that veganism is the ideal diet for a religious and spiritual biblically endorsed lifestyle. Both Christians and Jews are guided by the Old Testament’s injunctions and writings, which equally support a vegan lifestyle. Areas of discussion include G-d’s first intention, the biblical goals of preservation of health, compassion for animals, equitable sharing of food with the hungry, environmental protection and wellbeing, including conservation of resources, preserving and healing the world, seeking and pursuing peace. It concludes that in light of the animal, human and environmental impacts of modern livestock production and consumption, veganism is the moral, ethical and spiritually-supported choice for those who subscribe to lifestyles led and inspired by the stories, interpretations, commentaries, injunctions and guidance of the Hebrew bible. It also offers spiritually-directed followers a sacred way to actively, yet non-violently, oppose daily human, animal and environmental welfare violations caused by meat production and consumption.
