The Jewish heritage has a great deal to teach about the preservation and care of the planet, God’s gift to all of us. Drawing upon the wisdom of biblical, Talmudic, midrashic and other texts, as well as modern, reliable, scientific research, Rabbi Elkins lists scores of specific actions that we can perform to slow, and hopefully reverse, the deterioration of our environmental well-being.
While there are other books on the subject of Judaism and the environment, SIMPLE ACTIONS FOR JEWS TO HELP GREEN THE PLANET (Growth Associates / October 2011/ Softcover/ $17.99) is the only one that deals directly with specific actions and behaviors that Jews (and people of all faiths and backgrounds) can perform to become active in helping to green the planet.
