Originally from California and now based in Israel, Rabbi Yonatan Neril is the Founding Director of the Interfaith Center for Sustainable Development in Jerusalem.
“We’re using the environment as a way to bring people together and promote co-existence,” he explains, “while at the same time using interfaith cooperation as a way to amplify the environmental message.”
Rabbi Neril joins host Allison Kaplan Sommer in the TLV1 studio to explain how he came to integrate both interfaith and ecology into his work, and why he believes that environmentalism goes beyond politics, and should bring together people of all faiths, nationalities, and ethnic backgrounds.
