Jewish Climate Action Network Conference

Second Jewish Climate Conference

     The Second Jewish Climate Conference will take place on Sunday, March 24, from 12:30-7:30 PM at Temple Reyim, 1860 Washington St. in Newton. The conference will provide a comprehensive overview of opportunities for pathways forward in addressing climate change issues in the coming years. Participants can attend workshops led by renewable energy experts, rabbis, educators, artists, and food and sustainability experts.

     Subject areas include: sustainable buildings, advocacy and justice, spirituality and psychology, food, gardens, communication, and more.

     JCAN is partnering with the Synagogue Council of Massachusetts, Beantown Jewish Gardens, LimmudBoston, and Temple Reyimin in bringing this conference to the Jewish community.

     JCAN encourages synagogues to send a team that includes rabbis, educators, lay leaders, green team members, social action committee members, building committee members, finance committee members, teens, college students, and anyone else who is concerned with saving the environment. Participants will go home energized with new and useful information and with connections with others who are also working to make their synagogues more sustainable, as well as to the professionals who can help make it all happen.

     Anyone interested in attending the conference on behalf of the Temple should contact the Temple (617-846-1390 OR ttiwinthrop@gmail.com) which can then sign up attendees at https://www.jewishclimate.org/2019-conference/.
