Introducing an online, college-accredited course on Judaism and the environment! The course, ‘A Jewish Perspective on Environmental Sustainability,’ relates to contemporary environmental issues from the lens of Jewish teachings. The units covered include the Garden of Eden and a stewardship paradigm; Jewish sources on agriculture and globalized food production today; and the Torah’s injunction not to waste in regards to food and energy waste in modern society.
The course is being offered by the New York-based Theological Research Institute, and has been accredited by the national PONSI accreditation agency in New York. Please contact the course instructor, Rabbi Yonatan Neril, MA at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested or would like to receive the course syllabus. The course materials draw heavily on materials developed as part of Jewcology.
