From Eden to Manna to Sabbatical Year: Eco-Biblical Theology and Present Action

May 16, 2015 0

Rabbi Arthur Waskow

Rabbi Arthur Waskow, author and founder of the Shalom Center, is one of the American Jewish community’s pre-eminent teachers and activists on social justice and climate change. What insights does the Torah provide in response to human degradation of the planet? What revolutionary action does our tradition suggest? How is Shabbat itself part of the answer?

Arthur Waskow created the Freedom Seder in 1969 and The Shalom Seders in 1984, both efforts to connect the ancient seder ritual to contemporary issues. He is the author of over 20 books on public policy and Jewish life, including Seasons of our Joy, Godwrestling,and Down-to-Earth Judaism: Food, Money, Sex, and the Rest of Life.
