Animal Welfare, Not Warfare: Reconciling Human Needs with Our World’s Stability

Hosted By: The Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning

Living on this planet involves being a part of something bigger than ourselves. The way we engage with Earth’s other living inhabitants has a profound impact on the world as a whole. Jewish tradition has a deep understanding of our obligations to the animals with whom we share this land. In this special one-hour program taught by Rabbi Jonathan Bernhard (Executive Director of Jewish Initiative for Animals), explore specific views on animal rights as well as a broader framework for understanding our place as human beings in this world.
