The mass circulation of Gary Yourofsky’s speech in Israel was a joint project of the three prominent Israeli Animal Rights and vegan lifestyle organizations Anonymous for Animal Rights, Shevi – Animal Liberation Israel and Yoman Hayati (Animal Log).
The speech proved to be the most influential and effective tool in switching people to veganism. No other action got even close to the impact this speech had. Since the publication in April 2011, countless enthusiastic spectators sent in testimonies of how the speech changed their life.

To understand the appeal of the lecture, we consulted with several psychology experts. Opinions varied (read, for example, Dr. Melanie Joy’s Analysis) except for one subject which they all agreed on – this powerful speech has a tremendous potential to influence people to change their thinking and their way of life.
Indeed, to this day hundreds of thousands Israelis viewed the lecture, many of whom did not remain indifferent and adopted a new and cruelty free way of life.
