  1. Isn’t it weird to honor trees by printing out haggadot?

    Do people honor cows by making leather belts?

  2. and that is precisely why Hazon put this online as a downloadable resource rather than printing hundreds of books.

  3. I don’t know what “people” do, but as far as Jews go, yes, from a spiritual standpoint, we honor a cow by making use of it for a proper (G-dly) purpose, and leather clothing is one such purpose.

  4. So I actually go to the actual link above and it actually says:

    “…our hggadah is available in PDF format so you may PRINT as few or as MANY copies as you need…”

  5. Boxhead, surely Hazon advocates being reasonable and restrained when using natural resources, rather than a total cessation of their use.

  7. @BBN- i tried to find your posts on that topic to link to, but couldn’t locate anything. the preliminary response from Hazon I got on why they chose “B’Shvat” as opposed to the more grammatically correct “Bi’Shvat” I was told that they went for “more common usage.”

    That’s an odd argument for an environmental organization to be making. Should we drive cars as opposed to the more environmentally responsible biking or public transportation, because cars are in “more common usage”?

"I may attack a certain point of view which I consider false, but I will never attack a person who preaches it. I have always a high regard for the individual who is honest and moral, even when I am not in agreement with him. Such a relation is in accord with the concept of kavod habriyot, for beloved is man for he is created in the image of God." —Rav Joseph Soloveitchik
