WELLESLEY, Mass. -- On Tuesday, Nov. 11, at 4:30 pm in Pendleton West 212, David Seidenberg, rabbi, professor and environmental activist, will offer a lecture, “Ecology, Feminism and the Kabballah.” A reception will follow in Pendleton Atrium.

“The Kabballists, medieval Jewish mystics, believed 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 roles.”

The event is sponsored by Jewish Studies, the Writing Program, Peace and Justice, Women’s Studies, Religious and Spiritual Life and the Religion Department. For more information, call x2611.
