People’s Climate Movement march

Washington, DC, April 29, 2017

View our page on this crucial march,  planned by the same coalition that brought 500,000 people to New York in September 2014. Buses are being organized now. Those who can't come to Washington can attend events in Boston, which will be posted when logistics are worked out.

The Food/Environment Connection

This event is being rescheduled, having been canceled due to snow. Special guest Jeffrey Cohan, executive director of Jewish Veg, will lead an interactive discussion about the environmental impact of food production, how we can reduce our environmental footprint through food choices, and how this relates to Judaism.

Jeffrey was the Director of Community Relations for the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh from 2005-2012, then took the helm of Jewish Veg, then known as Jewish Vegetarians of North America. Jeffrey earned a B.A. from the University of California at Berkeley and a Master’s of Public Management from Carnegie Mellon University.
