Healing the World - Exploring the Environmental Crisis from Jewish and Christian Perspectives

Does God cry with each felled tree?

The environmental crisis is one of the biggest challenges of our time. A Jewish Rabbi and a Christian green activist sharing an interest in theology and ecology come together to help us rethink our prayer, theology and actions in response to a God who suffers for our sins against the earth.

Fiona Hulbert is a consultant in Jewish-Christian relations, including for the Council of Christians and Jews, where she was a Programme Manager until 2015. She is an Anglican Christian and was previously a Social Responsibility Officer for the Diocese of Salisbury. She has an extensive background in environmental campaigning which has included working for Southampton Environment Centre, running a local group for Christian Ecology Link (now Green Christian) and standing as a candidate for election for the Green Party at local and European levels.

Rabbi Natan Levy is the interfaith and social action consultant for the Board of Deputies of British Jews, and the chair of the Jewish Social Action Forum. He was the environmental liaison to the former Chief Rabbi, Lord Sacks, and the co-author of ‘Sharing Eden: Green Teachings from Jews, Christians and Muslims’. He holds a MA in Jewish Studies from King’s College, London, and is currently pursuing a doctorate in environmental theology at Bristol University.
