Last week I sent you a recipe for #Sukkot4ClimateHealing.
Like all recipes, it was intended to invite forth your own imagination – some cinnamon here, sprinkle of lime essence there.
The basic idea is that we turn the Harvest Festival of Sukkot into a melodious instrument for healing our wounded Mother Earth from which Sukkot as a festival was born in the first place.
We suggested holding vigils at Senatorial Congressional home-district offices and/ or branches or cash machines of Wells-Fargo Bank, waving in the seven directions of the world the traditional Four Species -- branches of myrtle, willow, and palm, and the lemon-like fruit of the etrog or citron. (Four species that grow in North American eco-systems might also be appropriate.)
Watching the unrestrained joy of this child now, waving the Four Species, keep in mind that 30 years from now, whether this child lives in joy or misery depends of whether we act NOW to heal the climate.
These vigils might demand support for the Green New Deal and an end to loans and Federal subsidies to Corporate Carbon Pharaohs that are burning our planet and choking our kids with asthma.

Please help us with your own ideas and suggestions about carrying out this #Sukkot4ClimateHealing campaign. We invite you to sign up for whatever sacred sources, old or new, you could create or share that would spiritually and politically enhance the sacred movement #Sukkot4ClimateHealing
to save all Earth and all Humanity from disaster: plans for a vigil, prayers, Hoshanot, sermons or midrash, songs.
Please click here and respond to a brief survey -- it should take only three minutes – at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/XJCXS7R Thanks!
Within two weeks we will share with you and our wide readership an action plan for communities to use and modify, and links to resources that we harvest. Meanwhile, we are sending a song that you could use either in the midst of a communal prayer service or in an activist vigil at a Wells Fargo branch or a Congressional/ Senatorial office.
With blessings that our commitment take root “Like a Tree that’s planted by the water” --- Arthur
