"Vegetarian" versus "plant-based"[edit]

This article is intended to be about the intersection of Judaism with vegetarianism. A recent edit introduced a link to the "Plant-based diet" article into this article's introductory paragraph (replacing the link to the Vegetarianism article that had been there) in a way that confuses the focus of this article. There is a substantial difference between vegetarianism and "Plant-based diet". Vegetarianism includes lacto-vegetarianism, ovo-vegetarianism, and lacto-ovo-vegetarianism. But the primary meaning of "Plant-based diet", according to the Plant-based diet article, is a diet that contains "few or no animal products", therefore few or no dairy or eggs. To reverse this move, I will change "plant-based diet" in the introductory paragraph to "vegetarian diet" and change the wikilink there back to a link to the Vegetarianism article.
