A reflection on ethical consumption

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/sukkot/article/a_reflection_on_ethical_consumption_20100921

Each fall after the High Holy Days have passed, the Jewish people move from comfortable homes into impermanent huts in backyards, driveways and on balconies for the festival of Sukkot. By eating and living in these fragile shelters, we train ourselves to temporarily subordinate our gashmiut (materialism) to the value of ruchaniut (spirituality).
