Hap­py Earth Day! To cel­e­brate, con­sid­er read­ing The Way into Judaism And the Envi­ron­ment (Jere­my Ben­stein). Benstein’s book explores the rela­tion­ship Jews have with the nat­ur­al world and the ways in which Judaism con­tributes to con­tem­po­rary social/​environmental issues. It also shows read­ers the extent to which Judaism is part of the prob­lem and how it can be part of the solution.

Jew­ish Lights has a very handy book club page for the title, which includes a Q&A with the author, along with dis­cus­sion ques­tions. Check out the resource page here.
