David Zvi Kalman explores Jewish responses to climate change when reversal is no longer a viable option.

Climate Change in Jewish Thought: What To Do Once It’s Too Late?

Judaism cares about the climate. That much is clear. The particular way in which Judaism cares about the climate, however, is biased towards prevention and universalism, despite the fact that climate change is at this point inevitable, and despite the fact that its effects will be very unevenly distributed. In this session, David Zvi Kalman explores Jewish responses to climate change when reversal is no longer a viable option.
