The Religious Action Center (RAC) of Reform Judaism, The Shalom Center, and Dayenu: A Jewish Call for Climate Action are co-sponsoring an activist conversation drawing on Torah on the evening of May 28, Erev Shavuot.
We invite you to join the conversation; there will be an opportunity for break-out groups to share your own thoughts, as part of observance through words and song of Torah of “From Shavuot to Sukkot: Green and Grow the Vote.”
Among the leaders in the conversation will be Rabbis David Saperstein, Michael Namath, Arthur Waskow, Mordechai Liebling, Jennie Rosenn, Tamara Cohen, Margot Stein, and Shoshana Friedman; renowned teacher-of-organizers Heather Booth; youth climate activist Isha Tobis Clarke; climate activist Phil Aroneanu of Dayenu; Cantor Linda Hirschhorn; Cherie Brown of the National Coalition-Building Institute, an expert in healing historic trauma; Arlene Goldbard, artist and President Emerita of The Shalom Center; and powerful young shofar-blower Zahava Kiernan.
They will join in connecting ancient wisdom from Sinai to our own generation’s needs for active engagement in the US election process to heal our wounded Earth from the climate crisis and to heal our society from other deep wounds.
You can watch the conversation live from 8 to 9:30 pm Eastern Time on May 28 via Zoom. It will also be recorded and we will send you the link by which you could watch it at your convenience. We encourage you to make it part of the traditional tikkun leyl Shavuot, the study of Torah on the night of Shavuot, to share with your friends and congregation.
