Shopping, Conspicuous Consumption and Jews – Rabbi Barry Gelman
I found this article about shopping to be very insightful and reflective of some very important values.
Perhaps the references to Christian theology will be unsettling to people so knave included another link to Jewish sources on the ethics of consumerism.
While this is the season during which people focus on shopping, the questions of how we shop, why we shop and how shopping affects our soul is worthy of ongoing consideration.
