and environmental activist, will offer a lecture, “Ecology,
Feminism and the Kabballah.” A reception will follow
in Pendleton Atrium.

that humanity, the Earth and God are all organically connected,” said
David Bernat, religion. “Thus, the actions of any
human, both in interpersonal connections, and in relation
to the eco-system, have wide-ranging consequences. The
teachings of the Kabballists thus have many implications
for contemporary concerns about the environment and gender
The event is sponsored by Jewish Studies, the Writing
