Jewish Environmentalism – Religious Responses to the Ecological Crisis
Hosted By: The National Library of Israel (NLI)
We are living through an ecological crisis that is challenging many aspects of human existence. Along with other religious traditions, Judaism has acknowledged the crisis and has responded to it by reexamining the canonic sources of Judaism, articulating new eco-theologies, affirming the ethics of care and responsibility, and generating grassroots environmental activism.
The lecture will explore the theological, ethical, social, and political dimensions of Jewish environmentalism in the United States and its relationship to environmentalism in Israel, while encouraging interfaith environmental education and collaboration.
