Rabbi David Seidenberg is the creator of neohasid.org and author of Kabbalah and Ecology: God's Image in the More-Than-Human World. One of the world's foremost experts on Judaism and ecology, David was ordained by both JTS and Reb Zalman, and brings a unique synthesis of spirituality and scholarship. He is also a dancer, a noted liturgist, and a scholar of Maimonides, Buber, and Rebbe Nachman.
Kabbalah and Ecology is one of the boldest, most imaginative and significant works in recent memory. With lucid expositions and meticulous scholarship, Seidenberg invites us to reconsider the ways we think about God, humans, animals, and the cosmos as a whole. His elegant and vibrant writing makes a persuasive case for a reverent embrace of all creation and encourages us to ennoble our lives.— Nehemiah Polen, Rabbi, Professor of Jewish Thought, Hebrew College, Newton, MA
Rabbi Seidenberg was engaging and thoughtful. He merged teaching with davening on Friday night and had people up and dancing. At another session, he brought participants into a deep discussion of the Jewish obligation to Love Your Neighbor/Love the Stranger, avoiding partisan politics and handling questions with authority. Rabbi Seidenberg teaches with love and it was a pleasure to learn from him.— David Krishef, Rabbi, Congregation Ahavas Israel, Grand Rapids, MI
