“Relating” to our Planet: Environmental Justice, Shmita and Making Positive Change

Thursday, January 28

6:30 PM

The recent smoke and fire disasters throughout the West Coast inspired TBT’s Sisterhood to consider the deep connection between Judaism and the natural world, and the need for both spirituality and environmental action. In honor of the upcoming Tu BiSh’vat holiday, TBT’s Sisterhood has scheduled a panel of religious and environmental experts to discuss issues such as environmental and climate justice, sustainability and what we can do as individuals to help. The panel will include Rabbi Molly Weisel, Marianne Engelman-Lado and Julia L.F. Goldstein, PhD. This will be a rare opportunity to hear from a dedicated group who are at the cutting edge of environmental protection.
Adult Hebrew

Starting Tuesdays February 2

6:30-7:30 PM

This 20-session class, taught by TBT member Merav Frank, is for those who have never studied Hebrew before and for those who have had some basic exposure.
