Jen Walper Roberts, a leadership coach and member of the Jewish community in Leeds, considers this question in conversation with her friend Nili Simhai, Director of Outdoor Education for Abundance Farm https://www.abundancefarm.org/, and reflects on the idea of giving the land a shmita or sabbatical year mandated by the Torah.
This podcast is part of a series of discussions on how people of faith respond to the questions “Have we left it too late to act against Climate Change? Is the world set on a course for destruction and there is nothing we can do about it?”
I appreciated listening to the 2 of you talking through your reflections. In particular listening to how you are re-appraising what success looks like and how that might feed into the way we think of the stories we pass on in our different faith communities. I also valued your reflections on adjusting our view of what ‘enough’ might be and therefore also what abundance means. Thank you!
