Now 6-8th grade students can explore connections between what they believe and how they live by looking at environmentalism through a Jewish lens.

Students will write their own advertisements for environmentally friendly products; compose a modern prayer about water conservation; use a carbon footprint calculator to learn about their personal impact on the world; and even design a genetically engineered species.

Using the powerful tool of a reflective journal, this innovative approach offers students the opportunity to contemplate their own relationships with the natural world from a Jewish perspective.

What is our place in the Universe?

  • Do we have a special responsibility for taking care of the world?
  • What's Jewish about how we treat natural resources like land, water, and air?
  • What does this mean to me?

Explore these questions and more with the checklists, personality quizzes, debate topics, and writing prompts in this journal.
