Sorry, no cholent here

The Jewish Vegetarians of North America (JVNA) just announced that their annual “Vegetarian Shabbat” will take place this year on Shabbat Parshat Beha’alotcha (June 20-21, 2003). The Torah portion read that week relates the infamous story of the Jewish people crying out for meat and God punishing them with the plague of quail. If you recall from Sunday school, many of the Children of Israel died from ingesting the foul fowl. According to a press release, “JVNA is urging synagogues and other Jewish institutions to have events during the Vegetarian Shabbat, including sermons, divrei Torah, debates, panel discussions, and vegetarian kiddushes and meals”.

I wonder what the Cambridge Cholent society thinks.
