Episode 28: “Never wear anything that panics the cat.”

By Jasmin Singer — July 24, 2010

Welcome to our 28th podcast episode of Our Hen House, featuring Michael Croland from heeb’n’vegan, with cameos by Jasmin’s grandma and mother.

In today’s episode, we give you the low-down on a very special vegan bakery that delivers all over the country. Trust me, you’ll want to try their cupcakes. I’ll also tell you all about a very melodic animal rights fund-raiser that I attended in NYC.

Joining us today is Michael Croland, from Heeb’n’vegan. Michael is joining us as part of our religion series, where we talk with people about how their religion or spirituality relates to their philosophy on animal rights. Michael will enlighten us about how Judaism and veganism relate. He’ll discuss everything from Kosher slaughter, to philosophy, to an ingredient you simply have to include in your next tofu scramble.

In our news section, we will discuss a new bill for animals that just passed the US House of Representatives. We’ll also talk about a debarking law in Massachusetts, and Mariann will share her thoughts on an article in Time Magazine that asks: Can animal rights go too far?

For our review section, Mariann and I will share with you an amazing restaurant experience we had, right in the Heartland.

    Kudos to Michael Croland for this very thoughtful and eloquent discussion, which very clearly presents Jewish teachings on compassion to animals.As president of Jewish Vegetarians of North America, I want to stress that the current mistreatment of animals results in major environmental threats including global warming and an epidemic of diseases in the Jewish and other communities, and that the production and consumption of meat and other animal products violate basic jewish mandates to preserve our health, treat animals with compassion, protect the environment, conserve natural resources, help hungry people and seek and pursue peace.For more information, please visit, where I have over 140 articles and 25 podcasts of my talks and interviews, and to see our acclaimed documentary A Saced Duty: Applying Jewish Values to Help Heal the World.
