The Human Place in Nature

By Ellen Bernstein

Coalition for the Advancement of Jewish Education (CAJE), Summer 2008

That power is in humanity's hands is clearly a risk for all of Creation. But our ability to choose between good and bad is what makes us human. It is up to us to determine if we will make of ourselves a blessing or a curse. To rule nature with wisdom and compassion is our greatest challenge, our growth edge. It demands that we understand ourselves and guard against our own excesses and extremes; it demands a constant level of heightened awareness.
