FILM and discussion: Racing Extinction

October 12, 2016 @ 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM


Join members of Temple Hesed for a special showing of the award winning documentary, Racing Extinction, from the makers of The Cove. Learn about why 50% of all species might go extinct in the next 100 years — and what we can do to change the future of our planet for the better. With special added scenes from Interfaith Power & Light and discussion to follow. Note: this film contains graphic and emotional scenes.

Share in your networks (and let Temple Hesed know you’re coming) using the INVITE feature on the Facebook Event page.

Rabbi Daniel Swartz says “When Rabbi Marjorie Berman and I saw this at the Parliament of the World’s Religions, we were incredibly moved —and it has motivated us to take on some life-changing actions. I hope you can join us at Temple Hesed for this important event— and can help us plan what our communities should do next!”

Live too far from Temple Hesed?  Through special arrangement by Interfaith Power & Light with the filmmakers, this film is available to PA IPL members.  If you can show it in a place with internet access, you can also show the 3 minute additional segment Racing Extinction: Faith & the Environment, which features IPL founder the Rev. Canon Sally Bingham, among others.
