Ariel Mayse: Where Heaven and Earth Kiss: Exploring New Perspectives in Jewish Environmental Ethics
March 27, 2022 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Program Fee: Free
In partnership with Urban Adamah
We will examine the relationship between theology, Jewish law, and aggadah with an eye to how Jewish teachings inform present-day environmental issues. Focusing on a range of issues–from pollution, zoning, and resource management, to distributive justice, creation theology, and the purpose of prayer– how we might construct a moral philosophy of environmental ethics that draws upon the full diversity of Jewish sources and the spiritual teachings?
3 sessions: March 20, 27 and April 10
