It's been a big year for Jewcology. Specifically, it’s been a Year of Jewish Learning on the Environment, with new learning materials released on a wide range of Jewish environmental topics. These materials have been shared widely in the Jewish community, including by such diverse Jewish publications as TorahCafe.com, the Jerusalem Post, Hirhurim (Torah Musings), and the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College.
In total, it’s the most comprehensive set of resources ever created on the topic of Torah and the environment. We encourage you to learn these lessons and continue to share them with your communities in order to bring this wisdom into our daily lives! Compilations will be available later in 2013.
A lot of other exciting things have been going on behind the scenes with Jewcology. We've got some exciting new features in the works, which we'll be sharing with you very soon! And as you can see from the blog space, we've got a fresh new team of bloggers sharing their ideas and resources every day.
Starting this Tu b’Shevat, Jewcology will be taking our learning to the next level with a Year of Action, focusing on the mitzvah of Bal Tashchit. It’s going to be exciting! We will address food waste and opportunities to save energy, topics that we’ve learned a lot about this year.
We’re also planning some great calculator tools on Jewcology, so that everyone can see the difference we’re making together as a community. We expect to have major partners in the Jewish environmental world, and to engage the entire Jewish community in shared action to protect the environment.
In honor of Chanukah, would you support Jewcology with a gift to make it a Year of Action in 2013?
