Wondering what more you can do on climate? Looking for a spiritual connection to action within our tradition?  Please join a special event we are co-sponsoring for people of all ages to learn about what our tradition has to say about protecting the planet, something our sages have much to say about. Hosted by JCAN NYC, This Sukkot: Jewish Climate Action and You, on Sunday, October 16, from 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM, at the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan, celebrates the relationship between Judaism and climate action.
