The author discusses the range of ways in which environmental issues are integrated into Jewish education curricula. He identifies four elements of experiential education that involve students' relationship to their learning experience: 1) each other; 2) their teacher; 3) their curriculum; and 4) their physical setting. The author provides examples of Jewish environmental educational approaches which incorporate these elements.
