Ecology in the Divine Image starts Monday, January 10!

In this 5-day lunch and learn series leading up to Tu B’Shvat, join Matthew Gindin in exploring 5 topics in the Jewish theology of nature: the divine image in the more than human; the relation of human beings to the created universe; the souls of animals; the divinity of the “silent ones”; and the singing of the earth. The class will be in dialogue with the inspiring work of Rabbi David Mevorach Seidenberg.

This class is free – or by donation, if you feel so moved!

IMPORTANT: there is one Zoom link for all 5 classes, so you only need to sign up for 1 class to attend all the others, and it’s okay if you’ve missed one.
