  • Our Place in the Universe Journal

    Tova Sacher, Sigalit Ur Marc Rosenstein

    Paperback (Behrman House, Feb. 28, 2014)
    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.
