Sustainability in Judaism
The idea of sustainability in Judaism and caring for nature is not a new concept, but rather an ancient one. Just as the body needs to rest, so does the earth, the land. The Shmita year invites us to look at the world around us and care for its needs, to see nature not as a resource for me but as a treasure we need to preserve and protect for everyone.
