Celebrate Earth Day with the Dayenu Circle

“Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” What exactly do those words mean and how do they affect you, your family and home, and your community? Please join members of the Beth Emet Dayenu Circle, along with Beit Sefer grades 5 and 6, to begin answering this question for yourself and your family.

In honor of Earth Day, the Dayenu Circle is hosting a film presentation and discussion of “Waste,” one episode of the eco-documentary series “Down to Earth.” Did you know that the average American creates 5 pounds of waste a day? Or that 1.3 billion tons of edible food is wasted each year, enough food to feed 3 billion people? In a fun and educational half-hour film, actor Zac Efron and sidekick wellness expert Darin Olien look at these facts and explore environmentally healthy and sustainable ways to live.

There will be plenty of time for discussion and questions as we imagine a world with no waste! (Oh yes, this is a movie, so popcorn is provided!)
