When God created the first human, God said to Adam, “Behold how good and praiseworthy my works are—and all that I have created I have made for you! But be mindful that you do not spoil and destroy my world—for if you do spoil it, there is nobody after you to repair it.” (Midrash Kohelet Rabbah 7:13)
The J believes it is our responsibility to care for the environment through everyday actions and consciousness. This responsibility stems both from the long tradition of Jewish respect for the earth and the well-documented effects of human action on the environment, including climate change.
We hope that you will work with us to maintain the environment’s health by participating in green efforts at The J as well as in your own homes. We are confident that we can make a difference and that coming together to appreciate the world around us will benefit the physical and emotional health of generations to come.
