Jew­ish eco­log­i­cal dis­course has shown that Judaism har­bors deep con­cern for the well-being of the nat­ur­al world. How­ev­er, the move­ment has not artic­u­lat­ed a Jew­ish the­ol­o­gy of nature, nor has it sub­mit­ted the sources of Judaism to a sys­tem­at­ic, philo­soph­i­cal exam­i­na­tion. This vol­ume intends to con­tribute to the nascent dis­course on Judaism and ecol­o­gy by clar­i­fy­ing diverse con­cep­tions of nature in Jew­ish thought and by using the insights of Judaism to for­mu­late a con­struc­tive Jew­ish the­ol­o­gy of nature.
