Text Study (advanced)

The middot (Jewish values/characteristics) listed below are among those which inspire our work this morning.

Bal Tashchit:  not wasting
Redifat Tzedek:  pursuing social justice
Tikkun Olam:  Stewardship/values and ethics
Hashkamat seder bereshit:  preserving Creation as is
Tzaar Baalei Chayim:  respecting animal life
V’ahavta l’re’echa kamocha:  love neighbor as yourself

How would you prioritize these values?  When might they come into conflict?  What other middot would you add?
