I’m from Israel. You opened my eyes. !!Your presentation is so true. I come from a religion where we have chicken on Saturday, or some type of meat. I’ve never been fond of “dead” stuff and always thought it was strange to eat it but the taste was good to me so I ate it. Now when I look at the meat I am sick.

I was a vegetarian for a year. But now I’m vegan. I always said that I’d be vegan when I turned 18. thank you for letting me know that waiting and wanting to be vegan wasn’t good enough. it’s because of you that this is the most amazing decision I ever made.

I’m glad to say that you opened my eyes about some things and it has been agreed in the family that we wont buy regular milk made from cows or any other animal. I am distributing your video to all my friends and family.

I saw your lecture on youtube and have shared it with others. I really think you can convince everyone and explain it in the best way why people should be vegan. You really changed my life and my friends’ lives and opened our eyes.

I live in Gedera, which is a small town, 20 miles south to Tel Aviv, Israel. A month ago, my brother and his wife came to my house and told me they decided to become vegetarian after they saw your lecture. That night we saw it and decided to become vegan.  For the last month, I am amazed at the reactions of people to the issue. The aggression, the denial and the “please don’t remove the cover from my eyes” was expected, but I also learned that beneath all that, people scream for help. It looks like veganism is inside everybody’s genes and they need someone to unplug them from the Matrix. Yesterday I read a report (http://www.nrg.co.il/online/1/ART2/299/173.html?hp=1&cat=459) in one of the biggest newspapers in Israel. The headline was: “Tens of thousands of Israelis had already entered on YouTube and listened to Gary Yourofsky. For many, he changed their world view and menu”. Then it went on to say: “Animal-rights organizations in Israel see Yourofsky as a Savior. [the animal rights group] Anonymous reported on an unprecedented wave of calls from Israelis who watched the lecture and decided to become vegetarians or vegans. Board members have even invented a nickname – ‘Garyvegan’ (vegans Following Gary).” I truly believe your lecture has the potential to generate a world revolution and I also believe the best place to start is the Holy Land.
