In case you missed it: the Coalition on the Environment and Jewish Life recently hosted a Gulf update call with local and national rabbinic leaders. Learn about these rabbis' recent experiences in the Gulf and what we can do to help by downloading the audio and listening to the call.
Check out video from Rabbi Saperstein's recent Gulf trip on the RAC's YouTube channel.
Celebrate Shabbat Noah
On October 8-9 as we read the Torah portion about the Noah, the Ark, the Rainbow and the Covenant, Reform synagogues joined a Jewish-community wide initiative to celebrate an environmental Shabbat in response to the Gulf oil spill crisis and our ongoing climate and energy challenges. It's not too late to get involved! We hope your community will host an environmental Shabbat and let us know what you are doing to become more environmentally sustainable.
Offer support for residents, families and friends in the affected region with RAC resources and ideas from our congregants and coalition partners:
