US animal rights movement founder, Holocaust survivor in Israel for speaking tour

Although the animal rights movement in Israel may have gotten a late start in comparison to that of the United States, activists in the sector are moving forward with striking momentum, a prominent American activist told The Jerusalem Post on Sunday.

“The movement in Israel at this point is roughly where the movement was in the US in the 1980s, but they are making progress a lot faster than we are,” said Dr. Alex Hershaft, 80, a legendary animal rights advocate as well as a Holocaust survivor. “I want to see what brings on this success and if we can export to the US."
