How did Tel Aviv become the vegan capital of the world?

Happy #WorldVeganDay! Did you know that Israel is one of the vegan capitals of the world?

If you want to go vegan, there's no better place than Israel. With the most vegans per-capita, Tel Aviv is the vegan capital of the world. Vegans in Israel are blessed with local gems that are vegan by design, but beyond those there are unique dishes that will make even carnivores drool. #SundayBrunch

25 Years in Memory of Yitzhak Rabin

SOUND ON

It is perhaps impossible to understate the remarkability of Yitzhak Rabin’s life, or the depth of meaning that he had to Israel.

Though tragically cut short, his life was a singular one that saw the vital moments of his people, often and up close.

Sustainability in Fashion

The Embassy of Israel in the United States is proud to host Sustainability in Fashion, featuring designers Maya Reik of Marei1998 and Arielle Crawford of ARIELLE. Both will participate in a live Zoom event open to the public discussing the rise of the sustainable fashion movement, the process that goes into developing and creating sustainable clothing, and the experiences of being a woman designer in a male dominated industry.

Fast Fashion is one of the leading contributors to devastating environmental damage and severe human rights abuses. Both panelists have become trailblazers in the fashion industry by offering clothing that is made and sourced sustainably. The designers, based in Israel and the United States respectively, utilize innovative technology in order to create pieces that marry style and sophistication without destructive environmental impact.

Founded in 2015 by Maya Reik, Marei1998 is a ready-to-wear and accessories label for the new era. Focusing on feminine, sophisticated silhouettes with impeccable details and Eco-conscious materials like recycled nylon, vegan leather, velvet and faux fur, the house offers a signature take on enduring elegance. In 2019, the brand became an official member of PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals).

Texas-born designer Arielle launched her eponymous label in 2018 after over ten years of experience in the fashion industry, including design roles with Rachel Comey, Alexander Wang and Madonna. ARIELLE is a sustainable apparel label committed to organic, recycled and zero-waste fabrics, local manufacturing, fair-trade supply chain, and plastic-free packaging and production. The brand is committed to making covetable clothes with no compromise to people or the planet and take no shortcuts on the path of integrity.

Today is the day that the global arms embargo on Iran is set to expire.

If the world allows Iran to import conventional weapons, it will only use them to fuel regional and global terror.

We cannot reward Iran's dangerous behavior.
