Powering the Promised Land: Fracking and Energy Use in Israel

February 12 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Limmud AZ presents speaker David Krantz at 11:30 am  – 12:30 pm on Sunday, February 12, 2016.

What’s the source of the electricity that powers the lights when you flick the switch in Israel? Hint: It may not be what you think. Israel is on the verge of becoming an energy superpower, but at what cost? Learn what most Israelis don’t know about Israel’s energy situation.

David Krantz runs Aytzim: Ecological Judaism, parent organization of Jewcology.org, the Green Zionist Alliance, and Shomrei Breishit: Rabbis and Cantors for the Earth. He also serves on the board of directors of Interfaith Moral Action on Climate and Arizona Interfaith Power & Light, and on the cabinet of the American Zionist Movement. He is a National Science Foundation IGERT Fellow and a Wrigley Fellow researching solar-energy policy and faith-based environmentalism at Arizona State University. He previously served as a leadership fellow at the Coalition on the Environment and Jewish Life and as a global-justice fellow at American Jewish World Service.


Other speakers: You can enjoy the whole day program at Limmud AZ from 9-5. There are individual sessions on multiple topics that will appeal and bring together Jews from all backgrounds and learning experiences. To learn more and to register:
