TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE –
TAKING ACTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE AND ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES
The recent MOMENTS survey completed by the congregation revealed that climate change is a critical issue as indicated by the highest number of respondents. B’nai Sholom has been participating with CRICCC (Capital Region Interfaith Creation Care Coalition) for a year now. During that time the CRICCC coordinator in the Social Action/Social Justice Committee has received many alerts about community programs and forums as well as “action needed now” requests.
Getting information to congregants in a timely manner has been difficult, as the lead time is often shorter than the cycle of our monthly bulletins and weekly electronic announcements. Therefore, the committee has proposed creating an electronic list of congregants who wish to receive information about environmental and climate change topics, including current events taking place in the area.
If you are interested in receiving climate change programming alerts and information about other environmental issues, you can sign up for the CLIMATE AND ENVIRONMENT listserve:
From the email account into which you wish to receive alerts, email Mitch Levinn at firstname.lastname@example.org and put “climate change” in the subject line.
