Judaism’s complex relationship to nature begins in Eden, where humans are commanded to subdue and to guard the earth. Join Jewish Theological Seminary scholars as they reveal the diversity of Jewish perspectives on nature and the sacred realm. How do our sources—literary, legal, and liturgical—conceive of the world around us and our relationship to other creatures?
