Karen Armstrong’s Sacred Nature Disparages Judaism
A Wilderness Rabbi’s Response
Please reprint or republish this article, or parts thereof, wherever you like (with proper attribution). My fear is that Jewish readers of Sacred Nature will think that in order to connect to the natural world, they must leave Judaism behind.

"The best compliment I can give this book - and it deserves it - is that I wish it was available decades ago since it would have saved me a lot of stumbling around. This is the book every synagogue should give out to every Bar/Bat Mitzvah along with the requisite Tanach and trees planted in their honor in Israel. Indeed, if every rabbi made that gift then it would make a perceptible impact on the second Holocaust Jews face today - assimilation."
