i’m a 2-day new vegan from Israel after watching a special video broadcast of you in Tel Aviv. I am happy that the animals found themselves such a charismatic speaker. I am also a student of NATUROPATHY and intend to learn everything about veganisim and food.

i’m from Israel. i watched your lecture on youtube today and i thank you for opening my eyes and reminding me of the truth that was covered with fear and other things that make us hold on to what we know and to what’s “normal”.i love you for each word that you said today. i use the word love because when i meet truth, first it comes to my heart and that’s how i feel right now, physically like someone woke me up from a bad dream. like you said, change comes from doing and not from talking. i don’t think i can stay apathetic after today.

your video on youtube effected me very strongly. its been two weeks since i saw it and i haven’t touched meat. every time i think about eating or see meat images, words from your video go up to my head and all i can feel is nausea. i saw videos like that in the past but from some reason it didn’t effect me like yours.

I’m a student at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. I wanted to tell you that lots of people here in Israel have seen your lectures and are interested in what you have to say.
You are truly inspiring.

I’m a high school student living in israel. I saw your lecture on youtube and it has some very interesting points. I understand how misinformed we are, especially here. I am a vegetarian but after listening to your lecture i am turning vegan.

I’m from israel. I’ve been sitting on the fence for a long time now. Never got the courage to do the switch. But after watching your lecture on youtube, I got the “push” i needed and decided to go vegan. i’m happily vegan for a month or so now and i’m reading all i can on the subject, influencing all around me in some way. so I just wanted to thank you and tell you must keep doing those lectures and use the web as much as possible as it opens a way to reach a lot of people who will probably won’t be able to hear you live.

I’ve watched a video of yours on youtube about veganism and I’ve decided i want to become 1 too. I was wondering if you can help me get started.

I have seen your presentation prepared for Israel and was moved to  tears by your passion, sincerity, and incisiveness. You make the argument for veganism so simple and at the same time so complete and you put your whole life on the line.

Just wanted to let you know that I’ve been vegetarian for 6 years, and decided to become 100% vegan following a video I saw of your lecture. Thanks for your words and perseverance.

I’m from Israel. I happened to see your lecture and I was shocked. I was exposed to things that I did not know and I thank you for that.

I am from Gedera, Israel (a small town near Tel Aviv). Watching your lecture raised questions that ultimately led me to one obvious answer – veganism. Even if you don’t like it, you’re already part of my biography, part of the perfection of joy that is part of my life today.

I saw your lecture on youtube. It inspired me to change my status from vegetarian to vegan. I admire what you do for animals!

I have come across so many posts of animal abuse and your lecture was the last straw. morally I can’t eat animals anymore, as much as I love what it tastes like, I can’t be a part of this ongoing abuse. I’m from Jerusalem and every year we remember 6,000,000 jewish people who were murdered in that very same way we treat those sweet animals. it makes me wonder if we learned anything. as humans – we need to value life so much more 🙂

i am from israel. i just watched your lecture and was impressed and very amazed to hear and see all those facts about animals. i knew we were living some kind of lie. I want to bring back my body and live peacefully. I really think more people should know about this. you sound a bit like Eminem. you are amazing man and may god bless you.

just wanted to tell you that your speech is amazing. I can honestly say the world would have been a better place if all people were like you. I wanted to thank you for your huge donation to the world. It really influences me to make a change and be a better person. Karma man. you deserve the best! I will pass on your speech to as many people as possible!

Just wanted to say thank you for your wonderful way of waking people and opening their eyes. It’s not just about showing horrible videos about the meat/milk/eggs industry, a huge important part is about the information, the attitude when you go and explain people, in a non condescending way and with real knowledge and belief.

I just saw your lecture with hebrew subtitles and I’m upset with you for two reasons. First, I love meat! I practically worship it! If a steak could talk, and told me to kill my father, I WOULD! Second, I’m also extremely mad at you for not showing up on my laptop screen earlier! Thank you so much for this lecture! The blinder-removal surgery was PAINFUL as hell, but it was totally worth it! The universe and I thank you. VEGANS ROCK!!
