Ellen Bernstein is widely recognized as the pioneer thinker and activist who helped define modern "Jewish environmentalism." An inspired speaker, her ability to merge scholarship with personal passion coupled with her activism and vision makes for particularly compelling presentations and classes.

It is writers like Ellen Bernstein who make it possible to find answers in the Bible to questions no previous generation has had to ask. A book rich in valuable insights.

[Ellen's] new book, The Splendor of Creation: A Biblical Ecology is a gem, beautifully written... A deep poetic work about living fully, being alive to life's wonders, feeling connected to creation and to the Creator. Here Bernstein joins the ranks of naturalists like Annie Dillard.
