A series of classes organized by JCAN looked at how core Jewish ideas, and ways of thinking can deepen and reinforce our work for justice, sustainability and health.
On January 10, more than 30 people representing 13 synagogues gathered at the first ever Sustainable Synagogues event. Sponsored by the Synagogue Council of Massachusetts and hosted by Temple Beth David of Westwood, the evening showcased the work of the Jewish Climate Action Network and Ganei Beantown -- Boston Jewish Gardens, and Organic Torah.
Some JCAN members joined a couple hundred other climate change activists organized by Mass Power Forward to ascend to the Massachusetts State House today.
Changing our physical impact on the planet is the What about how we respond to climate change. People have many, many, many different opinions about the best way to try to ensure the survival of human life on this planet, and few of us are in a position to intelligently judge them. But in addition to the What, and no matter which way the future leads us, there is also the How. How we go forward, in whatever we do, is as important, if not more important, than What we do.
