“The one thing we need more than hope is action. Once we start to act, hope is everywhere.”
-19 year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg of Sweden on Climate Change-
Thinking about a way to become more involved in addressing climate change? With Congress passing the most ambitious federal law yet to combat climate change, now is the ideal time to join forces with Beth Emet’s Dayenu Circle, as momentum builds to sharply lower our carbon footprint.
Launched last November, our Beth Emet Dayenu Circle is part of the umbrella organization of the national Dayenu in Washington, DC. Dayenu is a relatively new group seeking to combat climate change and other environmental concerns based on Jewish values. Since our Circle’s start up last November, we have focused on meeting a number of goals that fall into three broad categories: education and awareness, advocacy, and “greening” our synagogue and homes.
Some of the highlights of our work include the following accomplishments:
Starting this fall, we will be meeting once a month, with our kick off meeting on September 20, 2022 at 7 pm on zoom. Attend this meeting so you can learn more about Dayenu’s efforts and help us shape our goals for the coming year. We would welcome more voices and more hands in carrying out our work toward a more promising and healthier future for all of us and generations to come.
Stay tuned about our meetings either on the Beth Emet calendar (typically the 4th Tuesday of the month) or with updates in EmetMail. We also soon will be launching a new blog about how you can become more green at home Watch for The Greening Maven’s debut in October.
