An accessible introduction to the Jewish understanding of the natural world and the key concepts central to Jewish environmentalism.

At a time of growing concern about environmental issues, this book explores the relationship Jews have with the natural world and the ways in which Judaism contributes to contemporary social/environmental issues. It also shows readers the extent to which Judaism is part of the problem and how it can be part of the solution.

Offering both an environmental interpretation of Judaism and a Jewish approach to environmentalism, this book examines:

  • What environmentalism is.
  • What the creation stories can teach us about who we are and what nature is.
  • The relevance of Torah and traditional sources.
