Re: Research Query: Responsum on Plastic Water Bottles/Sustainability

Dear Rivka,

Not a responsum per se, but see the article by Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu (in Hebrew, pub. April 24, 2010), in which he cites Midrash Tanhuma, Kedoshim 8 (the story of "King Hadrian and the Old Man"; ed. Salomon Buber, Vilna, 1885, 76) and Kohelet Rabbah 7:13.

Call for 2019 ASEH Panelists: “Global Perspectives on Crisis and Space in Pre-industrial Environmental Histories”

Dear colleagues, we'd like to repost this call from H-Announce with an update: Faisal Husain, who will present on climate-induced disaters in the Ottoman Empire, has just joined our panel. We're very excited to seek for the fourth panelist who shares similar interest. Thank you!
