Bein Adam l'Adamah: Halachah of the Earth

Traditional Halachah (Jewish law) is organized in two overarching categories:

  1. The relationship between Jews and God/ess (בין אדם למקום / Bein Adam LaMakom)

  2. The relationship between humans amongst themselves (בין אדם לחברו / Bein Adam LeChaveiro).

We now need to add another meta-category organizing the relationship between humans and the Earth ( בין אדם לאדמה/ Bein Adam LaAdamah).

To begin imagining what this might look like, I had the pleasure of leading a study session for the "Green Sabbath project", where we unpacked this question via the legal revolution of “The Rights of Nature”.


Check out the recording for the full class:
