Description


The Torah begins by setting forth the heavens and the Earth as God's creation,

impelling humanity to steward our planet for its own sake and for its ability to

nurture our lives. Yet the human-Divine-environment relationship seems to be in

perpetual crisis. The Sacred Earth is a contemporary Jewish response to the looming

threat of climate change, the widespread desire for experiential spirituality rooted

in nature, and the continually changing relationship between humanity, nature,

technology, and the Divine. The leading thinkers in this collection refl ect on

human vulnerability in the face of forces of nature, examine conceptions of our

place in cosmology, and grapple with environmental destruction. Ultimately,

with hope, they creatively explore ways to redeem this sacred Earth.
