LISTEN: 2NJB Podcast — The Green Old Deal

“Bal Tashchit” is one of the 613 commandments in the old testament and it literally translates to “you shall not destroy” or “you shall not waste”. These two words are at the center of the Jewish debate on environmentalism.

Today we’re joined by Rabbi Yonatan Neril, co-author of Eco Bible, a publication on what the Bible says about ecology and creation care. We are happy to be joined by Rabbi Neril to talk about the environment, about climate change and about what nice Jewish Boys (and girls) should do to care for our planet.

Be sure to check out EcoBible on Amazon, Rabbi Neril’s Facebook and the website of his organization, The Interfaith Center for Sustainable Development.
