APRIL - EARTH DAY

How does Earth Day align with Jewish principles?

Earth Day aligns with Jewish principles in several ways, particularly concerning environmental stewardship, social justice, and the concept of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world). In Jewish tradition, there is a strong emphasis on the responsibility of humans to care for the Earth and its resources, based on the belief that the Earth is a gift from God and must be protected and preserved for future generations.

Many Jewish teachings emphasize the interconnectedness of all life and the importance of living in harmony with nature. This aligns with the goals of Earth Day, which seeks to raise awareness about environmental issues and promote sustainable practices.

Additionally, Tikkun Olam emphasizes the obligation to repair the world and work towards a more just and equitable society. Environmental activism and efforts to address climate change are seen as part of this broader commitment to social justice.

Overall, Earth Day provides an opportunity for Jews to reflect on their ethical and religious commitments to caring for the Earth and to take action to protect the environment in accordance with their faith.
