Kabbalah and Ecology: God’s Image in the More Than Human World

February 26, 2015 Newton Centre 0

Rabbi David Seidenberg discusses his groundbreaking new book that resets the conversation about ecology and the Abrahamic traditions. “Kabbalah and Ecology” challenges the anthropocentric reading of the Torah, showing that a radically different orientation to the more-than-human world of nature is not only possible, but that it also leads to a more accurate interpretation of scripture, rabbinic texts, Maimonides and Kabbalah. Deeply grounded in traditional texts and fluent with the physical sciences, this book proposes not only a new understanding of God’s image but also a new direction to restore religion — to its senses and to a more alive relationship with the more than human, with nature and with divinity.
