My journey: why being a Jewish woman has made me a climate activist.
I am a climate activist, because of the obligation of tikkun olam. And because, as a Jewish woman, our vulnerability is deeply personal. I will never be among those who believe “it cannot happen to me”.
The climate crisis is a Jewish issue because of our obligation to repair the world, because we are big polluters, because we have influence and therefore responsibility, because it may make Israel uninhabitable, and because it will create times of great disruption. History tells us that times of disruption are not good for Jews. Yes, I live a wonderful life, and I have a good chance of being dead before the worst arrives. But my children and my grandchildren do not.
Come hear about my journey, why you should take action now, and what options we have in the time that is left.
