W19-47 PARTNERS WITH OUR PLANET: JEWISH TRADITION AND THE ENVIRONMENT
Wednesdays: 9-10:20 a.m.
5 Sessions: Feb. 6-Mar. 6
TEMPLE BETH SHOLOM
Susan Spector

To whom does this world belong? Are we “owners”
or “guardians”? How do we strike a balance
between preservation and progress? How does
Jewish law differ in attitude from modern civil law
in regard to pollution and damages? Is there a
concern for the animal world? What can you do for
“Tikkun Olam” (Repair of the World)? What issues
concern you regarding our environment? Each
session will focus on a different concept as we
examine ancient texts (in English translation)
and compare what our sages taught with the
challenges we face in today’s environment.
Silver Member: $85; Gold Member: $76.50.
