Calling on all those concerned about climate change. Come to the next Dayenu Circle zoom meeting. We will be exploring ways to become a more zero-waste congregation by looking at other Evanston faith communities that have adopted zero-waste practices, e.g., composting and avoiding disposable plastic items. We will also kick off brainstorming about celebrating Earth Day in April.
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.
