Using the wisdom of Judaism to heal the planet. From God's first injunction, Behold, I have given you every herb yielding seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed, to you it shall be for food. (Gen. 1:29) The Hebrew Bible offers countless examples of how God intends a compassionate and caring attitude toward animals, our health, and the health of the planet. This attitude, as Richard Schwartz shows in his pioneering work w fully revised, has been a constant theme throughout Judaism to the present day. Indeed, Judaism's particular concern for tikkun olam, a healing of the world, has never been more urgent today - given the current state of world hunger, environmental degradation, and the horror of factory farms. Dr. Schwartz shows t only how Judaism is particularly well suited to solving these problems, but how doing so can revitalize one's Jewish faith.
