Among the many insightful Jewish environmental quotes and ancient teachings, these are some of the most poetic texts dealing with environmental integrity and eco-justice:

Genesis 9:9-10: "As for Me, I am going to establish My covenant with you and with your descendants after you, and with every living being in your care – the birds, the beasts, and all the land animals in your care – all who have gone out of the ark, all earth’s animals."

Exodus 23:6: "do not subvert the rights of your needy"

Leviticus 19:15: "do not favor the poor or show deference to the rich"

“It is not required of you to complete the task but neither are you free to desist from it.” ( Pirkei Avot 2:21)
