Shedding New Light on Jewish Traditions

Third Jewish Climate Action Conference: Everything Is Connected

Rabbi Allen (our speaker at Climate Change Shabbat)'s organization, the Jewish Climate Action Network, is holding the Third Jewish Climate Action Conference: Everything Is Connected taking place online April 25, 2021, 12:00-8:00 PM. The conference offers a holistic and comprehensive view of the work that the climate demands of us today -- as much as one can get in just eight hours. This free event covers advocacy (with special events by and for young people), soil and agriculture, decarbonizing, and resilience and weaves together youth, environmental justice, and anti-racism while focusing on action steps. Speakers come from leading Jewish organizations in addition to a wide range of environmental and groups and experts. People of all faiths and backgrounds are invited to attend, learn, and network. The conference is designed to be as educational as it is spiritually uplifting. Through dozens of workshops, you'll learn how you can improve our use of the soil, whether in your own garden or in agribusiness. Synagogue members can start to set achievable goals and organize within their congregations for greener buildings and grounds. Wind power, sustainable investment, local activism--all these topics are explored. Join climate activists from across the country on Sunday April 25, as well as the pre-conference workshops.
