Formulating Jewish Responses to Environmental Crisis

By Robert Rabinowitz

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, 2001

The author recommends placing Jewish teachings related to environmentalism within a broader framework adapted to a world of global markets. He suggests using the framework of "covenant," or partnership between God and humanity. He presents five key aspects of the covenantal principle: (1) Global Responsibility; (2) Pragmatic Idealism; (3) Open conversations across boundaries; (4) Personal growth and social improvement; and, (5) Cautious optimism.
