JCAN holds educational webinars, conferences, workshops, and talks on issues relating to climate change, including greening our synagogues, lifestyles, and homes.
JCAN GREEN BOOK CLUB
Join a group of readers to discuss books that deal with climate change. This group will provide an opportunity for self-education on a variety of environmental topics, including (but not limited to) the facts and consequences of climate change. We’ll read and discuss both fiction and non-fiction books with climate change themes. Each on-line discussion session will be hosted by either Thea Iberall and Deb Nam-Krane, and will provide practical information, mutual encouragement, and good company, as we all try to imagine what lies ahead for ourselves and our children.

Divestment Webinar - May 14
One of the easiest is to simply stop supporting the fossil fuel industry! In addition to making reductions in our energy usage, one place where we can easily eliminate support is in our retirement funds and other savings investments. We can divest from fossil fuel exposure and move our funds to renewable energy and even get better returns. Join socially and environmentally responsible investment specialist David Schreiber to learn how. 7:00-8:00 PM
