Judaism: The Temple Institute on Parshat Noah

Torah from the Old City of Jerusalem.

The first lesson we are taught by Torah concerning the ten generation epoch spanning from Adam to Noah is that man's behavior toward his fellow man has a direct and powerful effect on the natural world around him.

Proper human conduct is a prerequisite for any effective environmental activism to succeed in preserving the magnificent ecosystem with which G-d has blessed us.

A civilization that loses its moral compass will come crashing down, and take the natural world with it.

A cautionary tale.
