Respect for the holiness of creation, humans' duty to protect the natural world, reverence for the land--environmental beliefs and practices have been part of the fabric of Jewish life for centuries. Ecology & the Jewish Spirit uncovers Judaism's ecological message, a message which offers us a newfound spiritual approach to the many-faceted world supporting us. Respected experts from all walks of Jewish life, from Orthodox to Reform to secular, bring us a richer understanding of Jewish philosophy, law, anthropology, agriculture, and more. They bring to light the long-neglected environmental themes that are native to Jewish tradition-themes woven through ancient Jewish texts, the biblical creation story, Jewish law, the cycles of holidays and festivals, prayer, mitzvot (good deeds), and community.
