Rabbi Rami Shapiro: If we’re to believe the Book of Genesis, humans were created one of two ways:

either as “supernatural” beings given dominion over the land or from that very land itself, charged with the task of stewardship. Rabbi Rami Shapiro argues for the latter, and in this lecture, elaborates on the difference between these “I-it” and “I-thou” relationships. As the week on water unfolds, Shapiro urges us to consider our organic roots with all of nature.
