The Hoffmans “became aware of the cruelty involved in the raising of veal, and out of compassion we decided not to eat veal. Over the next twelve years we eliminated all meat eating,” becoming completely vegan in 1989.

From then on, the Hoffmans were “dedicated to cruelty-free living through a vegan lifestyle according to Judeo-Christian ethics.”
