Shabbat and Environmental Awareness Materials Released – Year of Jewish Learning on the Environment
The fifth topic in the Year of Jewish Learning on the Environment, Shabbat and Environmental Awareness, has just been released!
Today we live in a society which is constantly doing without sufficient regard to being, and at the same time, transforming the natural world without taking time to reflect on the long-term consequences. Shabbat as a spiritual practice offers great potential to reduce consumption and thereby benefit the natural world.
In addition to our summary article, longer article, source sheet and podcast, we are proud to offer a video featuring Rabbi Yona Metzger, Chief Ashkenazi Rabbi of Israel, speaking about the connection between Shabbat and our responsibility to protect the environment.
