Climate Divrei Torah

The CAC hosts climate action Shabbats at least twice a year, beginning with an Earth Day Shabbat in April, 2022. In addition, the Shomerei Ha'Adamah Circle meetings each include a short D’var Torah. Click here to see a sampling of these teachings.

Placards and Other Resources

Each CAC-sponsored Shabbat has placards that are intended to educate and spark conversation. A sampling of the placards is coming soon.

In addition, you can find Shomerei Ha'Adamah Dayenu Circle resources and programming coming soon.

Upcoming Events

The next Shomrei Ha'Adamah Dayenu Circle will take place via zoom on Thursday, March 2nd from 8 to 9 pm. As we prepare for Purim, we will follow in Esther's footsteps by creating our own action plans for ourselves in this next time period. As always, we will ground ourselves in Torah, expand our understanding of climate issues and take action in real time. Feel free to log on while you're cooking for Shabbat!
