Israel’s Vegan Village Where Each Resident Follows Only Plant-Based Diet

by | April 22, 2019

There is a village in Israel that has five thousand residents. Doesn’t sound anything news-worthy right? But what if I tell that each and every individual of the village is vegan, and abstain from any animal-abusing way of living? Early settlers arrived 45 years ago and today the vegan village sustains on a plant-based diet, and is thriving. That’s true, and to know more scroll down.

A community of people has thrived in amidst the Negev Dessert desert region in Israel in Dimona and the entire village is comprised of some five thousand residents live an eco-friendly life, sans bloodshed. The area is populated by African Hebrew Israelites of Jerusalem who abstain from eating meat or any other product that includes animals in it. They live on what is called a ‘Garden of Eden Diet’ which is often interpreted from the
Genesis 1:29 scripture from Bible reading-

“And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb yielding seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for food.”

The people who are African Hebrew Israelites of Jerusalem are spiritually oriented and according to Breaking Israel News, the roots of this tribe can be traced back to the Judah tribe.

The group that populates the desert region was first led by late Ben Carter (who started the movement from the US) to their current location after a lot of hardship from the US. He claimed to have an epiphany from Angel Gabriel who commanded him to lead African Americans to Israel.

“We are Jews in that we relate to being of the tribe of Judah. When Judah laid out the attributes of the last days, we are a part of that. We are not religious. Religions have brought a lot of problems in the world. Spirituality is where we need to go,” said Ahmadiel Ben Yehuda, the Minister of Information and National Spokesman for the African Hebrew Israelites of Jerusalem.

The community even runs a vegan restaurant in Tel Aviv and actively promotes veganism on the internet.

Famous travel blogger Nuseir Yassin from his popular Facebook page Nas Daily went to pay a visit to the people. He told in the video that the people of the village don’t eat salt for three days a week, don’t consume sugar four weeks a year and exercise three times a week. “They have a mandatory massage every month and they do not smoke or drink alcohol.”

“This village eats ZERO MEAT. NO DAIRY PRODUCTS or CHEMICAL ADDITIVES,” says Nuseir on his video.

A resident told to the same travel blogger that they understand in “order to maintain a lengthy, healthy, optimal, vital lifestyle,” they would “only be able to put noble foods” in their bodies.

What do you think about an entire village that thrives on a vegan diet that too abstaining from sugar and salt most of the time? Would you pay a visit to such a ‘holy’ place? Let me know in comments below.

    I would be interested in knowing medical statistics such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity. Also, what is the crime rate and what is the drug usage because I am thinking community such as theirs would be low crime and low drug usage because of the interaction and sense of belonging.

    Veganism is one way to practice AHIMSA, nonviolence. The positive alternative of an agrarian society centered around Cow Protection is what the Vedas recommend. Cows and bulls are protected for life, until their natural death, bulls work the fields and cows supply milk, the miracle food. Humans benefit from these things and also derive religious principles from caring for these valuable animals. Milk products from protected cows are superior in many ways compared to milk from unprotected and abused cows. Thus with cow protection, human society can be lacto-vegetarian with no anxiety.

    Just FYI – the video says they exercise 3 times a week, not a day.

    1 Corinthians 6:19-20 NIV
    19. Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;
    20. you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.
