Jewish Vegans between Scholarship and Activism

Main Article Content

Yoav Meyrav

Despite a number of standout contributions, it does little to advance scholarship in the field. The present review first discusses the various articles included in the volume and then reflects on the problematic editorial approach that hinders its enormous scholarly potential.
