Whether you’re a longtime vegan, or you’ve pledged to try veganism for Lent, holidays with your meat eating family can be tough, and Passover is no different. Thankfully, peta2’s own Jason Levy is bringing you this top 5 list of reasons you should have a vegan passover! (Hint: these are great to bring up to your family and friends who want to know why you’re making such a “crazy” decision by not eating animals.) Take it away, Jason!

Stay loud!

1. Passover is a celebration of dignity, hope, and freedom. Animals on factory farms are denied all of these things—and today’s “kosher” meat comes from the same abusive factory farms as all other meat.

2. The prayers said on Passover call on us to be kind to those who are now oppressed and to deepen our commitment to liberty today. The best way that we can do this is by going vegan.

3. Refusing to cause suffering is especially important at Passover. How can we accomplish this if our meal is the direct result of extreme cruelty to animals?

4. All suffering matters to God. In fact, the Torah tells us not to cause tsa’ar ba’alei chayim (suffering to animals).

5. It’s easy and delicious to have a vegan Passover—check out this page for some tasty recipes!
