Professor David Kraemer - Professor of Talmud and Rabbinics at The Jewish Theological Seminary
“Sustainability and Jewish Traditions”
How can an ancient tradition, one that took shape long before the industrial revolution, have something to say about consequences of human behavior that our ancestors cannot have imagined? In this talk, Prof. Kraemer will critique common approaches to the question of “Judaism and the environment,” while suggesting alternative world-views, rooted deep in Jewish tradition, that offer a genuinely Jewish perspective on contemporary challenges.
