Woodstock Jewish Congregation: Talks on Jewish Teachings about Sustainability and Climate Change

Project Description

The WJC, through our rabbi and a number of congregants, presented many Jewish teachings about sustainability that are relevant to our current climate crisis. This year we also added a number of talks that combined the issues of climate change and social justice. Talks were given at services Friday night and Saturday, in Torah class on Thursday and Monday and at the local Jewish Day of Learning. We also held an Earth Day celebration offering such teachings.

Successes/Progress:

Most of our congregants seem to take in these teachings. It is not clear how much they act on them.

Challenges Overcome:

There are no challenges to presenting the talks.

Impact Numbers:

About 25 people attended the zoom meeting.
