Jewish Environmental Ethics “ Shalome my friends”
Jewish Environmental Ethics? Tell me more Moses..
Well my followers, it links the Jewish tradition of ethical analysis to a significant contemporary problem. The Jewish tradition makes a distinctive and important contribution to our understanding of contemporary environmental ethics and the complex relationship of man to nature. Understand?
Balance, you say?
Yes, I do say balance. Judaism imposes numerous restrictions on how, when and to what extent people can use the natural environment.
“ When you encounter the nest of a bird before you…with the mother crouching upon the fledging or upon the eggs, you are not to take away the mother along with the children”
Therefore a principal belief in Judaism is balance.
