Mar­tin D. Yaf­fe’s Judaism and Envi­ron­men­tal Ethics: A Read­er is a well-con­ceived explo­ration of three inter­re­lat­ed ques­tions: Does the Hebrew Bible, or sub­se­quent Jew­ish tra­di­tion, teach envi­ron­men­tal respon­si­bil­i­ty or not? What Jew­ish teach­ings, if any, appro­pri­ate­ly address today’s envi­ron­men­tal cri­sis? Do ecol­o­gy, Judaism, and phi­los­o­phy work togeth­er, or are they at odds with each oth­er in con­fronting the cur­rent crisis?
