Religions of the World and Ecology home


David Mevorach Seidenberg was ordained at JTS, where he is currently pursuing a doctorate in theology, focusing on ecology. His dissertation is about constructing a Jewish theology which extends the idea of the image of God to both non-human creatures and the more-than-human world, using classical sources, Kabbala, and modern theories of language. Seidenberg is doing his research this year as a Finkelstein Fellow at the University of Judaism. He is also the founder of Hasidic Egalitarian minyanim in New York and Los Angeles, and is involved in research on Judaism and the body.
