I’ve loved animals ever since I can remember and have held a lingering interest in animal welfare issues since high school but it was only after I completed a project about animal ethics during a college sociology course that I realized how much this topic truly fascinated me and how animals had touched the very depth of my being. That class propelled me on a course which led me to learn shechita (kosher slaughter), start this blog, move to Nebraska and put in thousands of hours researching kosher slaughter, animal welfare and related Jewish law.
I’ve mostly fallen behind on my blog for the last six months and with this new position I'm unsure of when I will get to writing. But regardless of when I get back on the blogging horse your can now follow the work I do by going to the Jewish Initiative For Animals website and signing up for updates there.
