Judaism and Global Survival
This book is designed to show that both Jews and non-Jews don't need to discover new values and approaches to solving the crisis of environmental loss and planetary despoliation; what is needed, instead, is a rediscovery of basic Jewish teachings and mandates, such as to seek and pursue peace, justice, to love our neighbors as ourselves, and to act as co-workers with God in protecting and preserving the world. In such a way, Richard Schwartz calls for a new vision of the world--one that ensures our personal, interpersonal, and global survival.
