Gift and Responsibility: Judaism and the Environment with Rabbi Natan Margalit

January 21, 2014 Concord $90.00

Judaism has been a diaspora religion for many years, but we started out very connected to the land. The Bible makes clear that the land is a gift and we have responsibilities toward that gift. In this class we’ll look at a few of the ways in which Judaism approaches care of the land and of all creation.  Did we cause the ecological crisis with that line in Genesis about “conquering the land” (find out why not.)  How did the idea of waste come about and how does Judaism work toward zero-waste?  And how did the Rabbis create a way of thinking that is ecological – no matter what they were thinking about?  These and other questions will be discussed in this three part series with Rabbi Natan Margalit –
