Havurah Climate Action Team

Inspired by Jewish values and wisdom, the Havurah Climate Action Team (HCAT) inspires the community to take action on climate through discussions, events, trainings and engagement with other organizations. Our programming often is a response to current events. We welcome new members to our monthly committee meetings to share their ideas and energy. Join the "Creating Climate Solutions" email list to get timely information about local actions. HCAT is chaired by Elianne Lieberman, Marianna Grossman, and Harriet Cooke.

Inspired by Jewish values and wisdom we:

  • Raise awareness and take actions to address the threats from our climate crisis
  • Organize and align with other Jewish, inter-faith and secular organizations to provide a unified approach and stronger voice for climate change actions, climate justice, and solutions to the climate crisis
  • Create opportunities for Havurah families to make a difference at home, at the synagogue and in the larger community
  • Organize or provide access to climate action discussions, trainings, information and other activities to help Havurah members engage in and understand the importance and urgency of climate change

You can join HCAT or sign onto the Creating Climate Solutions listserv to receive updates on timely actions to protect forests, build climate-resilient communities, and join in the critical work that needs our advocacy and voices. We also host monthly mental health support groups related to climate and other issues and have periodic mending circles. To sign onto our listserv, please email shmita@havurahshalom.org.

Working together towards solutions, we grow the seeds of our hope, our 21st Century mitzvot.
