Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara have decided to join the Meatless Monday initiative, a statement by the Prime Minister's Office said Monday.

"With my responsibility as prime minister to protect the lives of people here, I feel committed to increase awareness to fight cruelty toward animals," Netanyahu said.



Netanyahu and his wife met with Micki Haimovich, who launched the Meatless Monday campaign in Israel a year ago.

Haimovich told the prime minister and his wife about the international imitative and about the health and environmental aspects of consuming meat.

The couple said they eat very little meat and added that their son Yair has become a vegetarian in the past few years.
