  1. The World as Sacred Space

    In a recent class on Jewish environmental ethics, one participant asked: “If our tradition sees the world as sacred enough to deserve our utmost protection, then why haven’t I heard this before — and how did we let things get so out of whack?”

  2. Take Your Judaism For A Walk

    My dictionary defines ecology as “the relationship of organisms to their environment.” The root, eco, is from the Greek word oikos, meaning house, the space we inhabit. When we speak of ecology today, however, we generally mean making the world a better place to live in by cleaning it up.

  7. Fred Dobb Eco-Judaism session - Global Day 2016

    “Love of the Creator, and love of that which G!d has created, are finally one and the same,” wrote Martin Buber.  Defending this divine creation in an era of climate change is a Jewish (and social, political, and moral) imperative.  A rich Jewish life is by nature an environmental one, though we need to pick up the pace, draw more explicit connections, and make our community a beacon of sustainability.

  10. Co-signed Hazon letter on withdrawal from Paris climate accord

    To leaders within the American Jewish Community:

    Dear Friends,

    We are Jews, organizational leaders and rabbis, teachers and students who work passionately towards a bright American Jewish future. 

    We are also human beings who care deeply about all life. 

    And from this integrated Jewish and universal perspective, we are shocked by our President’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord.
