Tisha B’Av in the Age of Climate Crisis: Interactive Discussion and Potluck Dinner

July 26, 2015 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

Tisha B’Av is a day of fasting and mourning in response to the destruction of the ancient Temple in Jerusalem, and other tragedies, with a traditional reading of the Book of Eicha, or Lamentations. Rabbi Katy Allen, rabbi of Ma’yan Tikvah and President of the Jewish Climate Action Network, will lead an experiential evening that will include going out outdoors to connect to the Earth. She will use selected passages Eicha and additional resources in juxtaposition with statements about climate change impact as the basis of our exploration of What Can Judaism Teach Us in the Age of Climate Crisis. Bring a short statement about climate change impact, a vegetarian dish to share, and your own dishes and utensils. As Tisha B’Av draws to a close we will share a potluck dinner together. Enter via the door on the parking lot on Church Street near the corner of Church and Centre.  Co-sponsored by the Jewish Climate Action Network. Optional donation: $5-18, more if you can, less if you can’t.
