We have the whole world in our hands!

 Half a century ago, the American Jewish community played a vital role in the great struggle to advance and heal American democracy

through the civil rights movement.
 
In our generation, the Earth and all humanity

need the American Jewish community to join the great epic struggle

to prevent the climate crisis from becoming climate disaster.
 
How do we learn to do this?

 Rabbi Arthur Waskow, Cherie Brown, 

 & Rabbi David Shneyer will lead the workshop …

 Our three groups are cooperating to help sharpen

YOUR knowledge, skills, focus,

and ability to draw on Jewish values

to move from a time of deadly danger

to a time of creative birthing.

 

Rabbi Arthur Waskow, director of The Shalom Center & recipient, T’ruah’s Lifetime Achievement Award as Human Rights Hero,

will draw on his and The Shalom Center’s deep experience

in bringing Torah, the Jewish festivals, and eco-kosher practice

to bear on “global weirding.”
 
Cherie Brown, Executive Director of NCBI, will lead a session on healing Jews from feelings of disconnection

from the Earth and powerlessness

in the face of top-down global corporations.
 
Rabbi David Shneyer, spiritual leader of Am Kolel and
Kehila Chadasha, member of the board of the Montgomery Countryside Alliance, and former president of Ohalah Rabbis for Jewish Renewal, will draw on his lifetime of creative Jewish community-building and activism on a range of social issues, including the climate crisis.
 
Together, we will help participants become able to bring their own sustainable activism to the healing of a sustainable world.   


The workshop fee is $36 until March 21, and $45 thereafter till April 2. Registration closes then, so that we know how many people will be present.
