A Jewish Energy Guide, edited by David Krantz.
We have before us a challenge, a special moment for Jews, a challenge as compelling and urgent as any that humankind has ever faced
before, a challenge of interest both universal and particular. We write of this planet, our home and of the pressing need to transform the world’s energy economy while addressing global climate change.
As Jews: God, we are taught, declares to us, “Look at My works! See how beautiful they are, how excellent! For your sake I created them
all. See to it that you do not spoil and destroy My world, for if you do, there will be no one after you to repair it.” (Ecclesiastes Rabbah 7:13)
