Laudato Si and the Sages: Rabbinical Reflections on Climate Justice and our Common Home

Room 602A
Pope Francis’s encyclical, Laudato Si: On Care for our Common Home, inspired millions of Catholics across the planet, while serving to spark discussions in countless other faith communities. To better understand both the dimensions of climate justice and what our faiths call us to do in response, Rabbi Swartz has collected thousands of Jewish texts that parallel key teachings in Laudato Si. On topics ranging from our connection to the earth, to global inequity, Rabbi Swartz will lead discussions on key religious teachings and how they can inspire us to work together on behalf of our “common home.”
