Praying When the World is at Stake

Rabbi Avi Killip

A Theology of Climate Change

As we watch storms surge and fires burn, the changing climate has moved from an abstract fear to an ever-present reality. The enormity of this crisis demands a complex type of faith, a different kind of prayer, and a theological reckoning. How can we bring our fears and hopes to God? What might it look like to pray about climate change? In the Dr. Eddie Scharfman Memorial Lecture 2023, Rabbi Avi Killip explores the wisdom that Jewish tradition has to offer for this time of global crisis.
