Join Me at the Teva Seminar on Jewish Environmentalism
Do you serve on your synagogue’s Green Team? Do you wish you had the tools to educate your congregation about recycling, conserving energy and the benefits of eating locally grown foods? If you are interested or involved in Jewish environmental learning, mark your calendars for the Teva Seminar on Jewish Environmental Education and Shabbat Retreat, from June 12-17!
The Jewish environmental movement has experienced exciting growth in recent years. Issues such as hydraulic fracturing and food justice have been at the forefront of reinvigorating our Jewish tradition’s long history of promoting sustainable stewardship. The Teva Seminar is an amazing professional development opportunity in which students, scholars, scientists, advocates, leaders and educators of all kinds gather for a week of powerful learning, community and networking.
Need more convincing? At the seminar I will be teaching a class along with Sybil Sanchez, Director of the Coalition on the Environment and Jewish Life, called “Eco-Jewish Activism: Integrating Environmental Advocacy and Programming.” In this session we’ll explore what it means to be strong Jewish advocates for the environment and address how we can help shape our nation’s public policy to reflect our values in areas such as climate change, energy, and clean air and water. I would love to have you join me.
The seminar, hosted by the Teva Learning Alliance, one of the most successful and established Jewish environmental organizations in the country, will take place at Surprise Lake Camp in Cold Spring, NY.
