JHI Environmental Humanities Network Working Group
Please join us to celebrate the book launch of
Waste Not: A Jewish Environmental Ethic
Professor Tanhum Yoreh traces the development of bal tashḥit, the Jewish prohibition against wastefulness and destruction, from its biblical origins to the contemporary environmental movement. Waste Not provides a comprehensive intellectual history of this concept, charting its evolution from the Bible through classical rabbinic literature, commentaries, codes of law, responsa, and the works of modern environmentalists.
This book supports conversations about faith, consumption and waste, and provides a foundation for understanding the prohibition as an environmental ethic for today and tomorrow.
Copies of the book will be available to purchase at the event for the significantly reduced price of $65. Cash only. Books are also available at a variety of different online sellers.
This event is free and open to all. Registration is required. For more information, or if you require accommodation please contact Event Coordinator at email@example.com
