Thursdays, February 9th & 16th
During these two evenings we will discuss one essay each night from Volume 1 of Torah of the Earth: Exploring 4,000 Years of Ecology in Jewish Thought, edited by Rabbi Arthur Waskow. How do we deal with the environmental crisis as Jews using the wisdom of Judaism? What kinds of actions should we take both personally and as a Jewish community? These are just some of the questions to be explored.
Participants will need to read the essays before meeting. The first one is "Judaism and the Practice of Stewardship," by Dr. David Ehrenfeld and Rabbi Philip J. Bentley. The second is "The Rabbis and Expanding Environmental Consciousness," by Rabbi Fred Dobb. Copies of the essays will be made available to participants ahead of time.
Please RSVP to Maureen Beezhold at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 541-752-3517 if you have questions about the class.
