I first met Nick Carter in July 1974 when I assumed the position of rabbi in
the Wimbledon and District Synagogue of which he was a devoted member.
Already a veteran speaker and writer in the fields of animal welfare and
environmental care, I was used to meeting polite indifference in my fellow
Jews whenever I claimed that Judaism demanded positive action in response
to any abuse of animals or of the environment. Not only was Nick far from
indifferent but he had worked professionally in these fields for many years.
