Biodiversity & Animal Welfare Species Protection & Conservation
We live in an amazingly diverse world, with approximately
8.3 million unique species described by scientists, and likely twice
that number that have not yet been discovered. Jewish sources teach that G-d has joy in the diversity and continuity of creation, and that G-d sees a purpose in each of these species. This biodiversity is an expression of G-d’s glory, a testament to the extraordinary creativity of our Creator.
Although the flood and the life of Noah occurred thousands of years ago, the story of Noah offers important lessons about how our actions – both intentional and unintentional – can affect the world.

Relating to AnimalsA Healthy & Compassionate Lifestyle
The Torah espouses compassion for all creatures and affirms the sacredness of life. These values are reflected by the laws prohibiting cruelty to animals and obligations for humans to treat animals with care.People living in consumer society relate to material objects in a vastly different way than people did in previous times. Age-old Jewish teachings reveal a Jewish vision for ‘holy use’ of the material world and relate deeply to today’s need for sustainable resource use.
