Towards a Better Climate Change Mythology: Tractate Ta’anit

Hosted By: Hazon

The year 2020 was largely defined by the acute crisis of COVID-19 and the U.S. presidential election. With the arrival of Tu Bishvat, now is the time to look anew at our Jewish texts and our approach to the climate crisis.

As our planetary systems continue to destabilize, how can we access the deep sources of wisdom in our Jewish tradition to tap into the power of this moment and make a lasting change? This eight-part series will be a deeper exploration of the Jewish theological responses to climate change found in Talmud Ta’anit.
