Jeffrey Bronfman, an educator, philanthropist, and environmentalist, became the first Mestre (teacher/guide) of the União do Vegetal (UDV) religion outside of Brazil in 1994. Subsequently he served as the lead plaintiff in the UDV’s decade-long case against the U.S. government, which, in 2010, secured legal acceptance of the UDV’s religious practice, including its use of the Amazonian plant decoction “hoasca” as a sacrament.
