Join Rabbi Noah Cheses for this class to explore the historical, philosophical and legal relationship between humanity and the natural world. We will examine several biblical and rabbinic texts that speak to the question: What are the specific responsibilities that Jews have toward the preservation of the environment?

Rabbi Noah Cheses grew up in Boston, where he attended Maimonides School. He received his rabbinic ordination from Yeshiva University (RIETS) and earned his master’s in theology from Yale University. During his studies, he was a Norman Lamm Fellow in Jewish Thought and a Wexner Graduate Fellow. He was the assistant rabbi of Shaarei Shomayim Congregation in mid-town Toronto and spent three years as the OU-JLIC Orthodox rabbi at Yale University. He currently serves as the rabbi of Young Israel of Sharon.

This class is open to women and men.
