Answering the Call: An Interfaith Gathering for Climate Action

Over 500 people joined us on Monday October 12 at Temple Beth Elohim!

 

With his encyclical in June and his visit to the US in September, Pope Francis has created an opportunity for people of all faiths to respond to the challenge of climate change as an issue of moral imperative and social justice with “a new and universal solidarity." Religious and spiritual communities are coming together to advocate for a clean and just energy future for all in Massachusetts. Contact Rabbi Shoshana to get involved!

 


Land Ethics & Climate Change in Judaism: adult ed course

Sundays November 8, 15, 22 from 9:30am-10:50am

Taught by Rabbi Shoshana. FREE and OPEN to the public. No RSVP necessary.

Temple Sinai, Brookline (50 Sewall Ave, Brookline, MA 02446)

Rebbe Nachman of Bratslav used to say: "Friends do not despair! When a difficult time has come upon us, joy must fill the air!" As climate change begins to impact our lives and the lives of people and ecosystems around the globe, a difficult time is indeed upon us. Religious communities hold power and relevant wisdom, and we are called upon to show up with love and hope to one of the biggest challenges humanity has faced. In this three session course we will study Jewish texts on the human relationship with land, learn about the connection between climate change and social justice from a Jewish perspective, and explore ways Temple Sinai and the Boston interfaith community can take leadership in the growing interfaith climate justice movement.
