Lunch & Learn – “Beyond the Animals in the Ark: Ecological Lessons from Parshat Noach”
Saving “two of each land” of animal on Noah’s Ark is often cited as a lesson in biodiversity from the Torah but this is not the only ecological lesson in the Torah reading. We’ll look beyond the ark: to what happened before the flood and what happened afterwards – up to the story of Tower of Babel. Join us as we explore ecological lessons embedded in places we might least expect.
