As we approach Rosh Hashanah and the High Holy Days, join us for a study session with rabbi Yonathan Neril and learn more about how we can draw inspiration from our tradition to promote a more sustainable lifestyle and earth and how Jewish values relate to ecological sustainability.
About the Lecturer:
Rabbi Yonatan Neril founded and directs The Interfaith Center for Sustainable Development (ICSD). Yonatan is coauthor of the bestselling book Eco Bible, published by ICSD, which shines new light on how the Hebrew Bible and great religious thinkers have urged human care and stewardship of nature for thousands of years as a central message of spiritual wisdom. He has spoken internationally on religion and the environment, including at the UN Environment Assembly in Nairobi, the Fez Climate Conscience Summit and the Parliament of World Religions. He co-organized ten interfaith environmental conferences in Jerusalem, New York City, Washington D.C., and Atlanta. He is the lead author and general editor of three books on Jewish environmental ethics and also co-authored three reports on faith and ecology courses in theological education.
