im 16 and from Israel. i don’t even know if you will ever read this but i have to share this with you. i was vegetarian for about a year.every one who cared about me was really negative. they told me that meat was good for me and im ruining my body. but now after i saw you video (lecture that you made on 7/8 ) i started to cry. i realized how stupid i was when i though that if i didn’t eat meat I would hurt myself. i hate myself that in some way i let society control my will. i know that tomorrow my boyfriend will try his best to make me eat this stuff. my mom may try too and yell at me. and it seems that there’s nobody to care and protect me. so i have to make a promise to someone who cares, and that’s you. ill do my best to become fully vegan and try to change minds of others. i wish you could come to Israel because the subject is hard here even though we have a few right animal organizations. thank you for being you and sharing your knowledge with others!

I’m an animal rights activist in Israel. I run an animal rights TV program on the community channel in Israel and on the internet. Producing original videos and using others organization videos with Hebrew subtitles. I saw your lecture on youtube. and I was amazed! I have never saw presentation of this issue the way you did it!!! I wish to translate to Hebrew your lecture, and publish it on our channel.

I’m an animal-rights activist living in Israel. I saw your 5-part lecture on YouTube and it was the best speech I ever heard. Your speech skills are unmatched in our movement. If a teacher from an Israeli university will invite you to lecture in his/her university, is it a possibility?
