Let the Earth Teach You Torah
An important contribution. This book will help train a whole generation of Jewish youth to see the world—and their own tradition—through new eyes. Its authors deserve our profound thanks.
This original and refreshing guide is filled with thoughtful perspectives and practical techniques for teaching a Jewish understanding of the human place in nature. Great for weekend retreats, camps, family education, and high school and adult education.
Secular materialism, the philosophy which serves as the driving engine of the extractive economy, would be totally repealed if even a small fraction of this book is internalized and practiced by a small percent of our population. Few books stand the chance to be as dog-eared from practical use as this one. All ages will benefit from the creativity Ellen Bernstein and Dan Fink have exercised in bringing forth the relevant scripture to the modern environmental crisis.
This pioneering work fills a niche which has been empty for too long.
