The broader tradition is clear that we are custodians and guardians of life on this planet. In the Torah we learn, “The land shall not be sold in perpetuity, for you are strangers and sojourners with me” (Leviticus 25:23); elsewhere in the Psalms (Psalm 24:1) we are taught, “The earth is God’s and the fullness thereof”; and our ancient sages then guided, “See how lovely and how worthy of praise are My works; they have been created for your sake. Take care not to spoil or destroy My world, for if you do, there will be no one else to repair it.” (Ecclesiastes Rabbah 7:13).
We welcome your insights and engagement to help make our synagogue, community and world one in which we move from an extraction economy to one that honours the web of life.
