Ariel Mayse: Where Heaven and Earth Kiss: Exploring New Perspectives in Jewish Environmental Ethics

April 10 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

|Recurring Program (See all)

An event every week that begins at 1:30 pm on Sunday, repeating until April 10, 2022

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
