On Judaism & Fur

A colleague recently shared this article, written for an Orthodox Jewish website, on the issue of wearing fur.  The author is the president of Jewish Vegetarians of North America.  The piece offers a learned discussion of the tradition of compassion and respect for nonhumans woven through Judaism.  Perhaps even more interesting are the comments, which range from the thoughtful to the completely obtuse, all the while referencing Jewish law.
