Cheryl.MalkahBinahPlease do RSVP so we’ll know how many places to prepare, and include your email and phone so that we’ll know where to contact you in case of poor road/sidewalk conditions (It’s February.  It’s happened before!).

The workshop is open to clergy and non-clergy alike.  We’ll be doing a text study of the Exodus 23: 1-3, from the Torah portion for February 14th.    Bring a favorite translation!

THE CONTEXT: Every year in mid-February (February 13/14/15 this year) national Interfaith Power and Lights encourages a “Preach-In” on climate changeWe use this as an excuse to gather clergy and other interested folks together for fellowship, food, and a discussion about bringing climate change before the congregation.  We’ll share resources, advocacy materials, and brainstorm and support one another.

Participating does not commit you to  participating in the preach-in — it’s a chance to explore, study, and learn. Led by Rabbi Malkah Binah Klein and Rev. Cheryl Pyrch.

Thank you to Susan Saxe for catering breakfast.
