    We betray the broad heritage of Torah when we fail to recognize justice and righteousness as primary religious categories of Judaism. This week’s Torah portion opens with the summons to “appoint judges and officials for your tribes and they shall govern the people with due justice. You shall not judge unfairly” (Deuteronomy ).Author: Rabbi Bradley Artson.

    Deuteronomy is the fifth book of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament. It stands last in the section known as the books of the Torah, the Pentateuch, or The Books of Moses. The name Deuteronomy comes from the Septuagint’s Greek title for the book, to deuteronomion, meaning “second law” or “repeated law,” a name tied to one of the Hebrew.   Bill McKibben, whose book The End of Nature was one of the first to protest against the effects of climate change, offers us, in Eaarth, one of the most important books on environmental justice in the 21st recognizing that some damage resulting from climate change will be irreversible, McKibben is optimistic that humanity can still adapt and avoid the worst possible outcomes.
