Richard Schwartz - Judaism and Vegetarianism
Judaism and Vegetarianism
by Richard H., Ph.D. Schwartz, Richard H. Schwartz 62 2/01
The Hebrew Bible offers countless examples of how God intends a compassionate and caring attitude toward animals, our health, and the health of the planet. This attitude, as Richard Schwartz shows in his pioneering work now full revised, has been a constant theme throughout Judaism to the present day. Indeed, Judaism's particular concern for tikkun olam, a healing of the world, has never been more urgent than today - given the current state of world hunger, environmental degradation, and the horror of factory farms. Dr. Schwartz shows not only how Judaism is particularly well suited to solving these problems but how doing so can revitalize one's Jewish faith.
Judaism and Global Survival
by Richard H. Schwartz 69 2/02
This book is designed to show that we don t need to discover new values and approaches; what is needed is a rediscovery of basic Jewish teachings and mandates, such as to seek and pursue peace, justice, and to love our neighbors as ourselves, and to act as co-workers with God in protecting and preserving the world. In such a way, Richard Schwartz calls for a new vision of the world one that ensures our personal, interpersonal, and global survival.
