Climate change is the most significant challenge to the future of humanity and other life forms on Earth. Along with other world religions, Judaism has recognized the challenges posed by climate change and has spawned religious environmentalism. The lecture identifies the principles that guide Jewish environmental ethics and the characteristics of Jewish environmental activism. Special attention will be paid to the relationship between religious and secular dimension of Jewish climate advocacy that links ecological justice to social justice.
