Who Stole My Religion? is a wake up call to Jews to apply Judaism’s powerful teachings on justice, peace, compassion, kindness, and environmental sustainability to help shift our imperiled planet onto a sustainable path. It extols Judaism, arguing that Judaism is a radical, transformative religion, but many Jews, especially Orthodox Jews, are in denial about climate change and are supporting conservative politicians and policies that are inconsistent with Jewish values. Richard Schwartz provides a thought-provoking read, and he demonstrates that the future of humanity depends on Jews applying Judaism’s highest values in response to today’s crises.
