Climate Change & The Conference in Copenhagen
These activities are aimed at teaching the causes of climate change and what will happen to the planet if we don’t change our lifestyle – as well as offering the opportunity to consider our Jewish responsibility to act. With one in every 19 people living in the world’s poorest countries at risk from climate change, compared to one in every 1,500 in the wealthiest; it is important to understand the impact our lifestyle has not just in the UK but how it affects people in developing countries.
Now is the time to act.
As the Kohelet Rabbah 7:13 reminds us, “when G-d created the first man, G-d showed him all the trees in the Garden of Eden and said, ‘See to it that you do not abuse or destroy My world. For if you abuse or destroy it, there is no one to repair it after you.’”
