Blast of the shofar calls Jews to work for solutions to the climate crisis

Washington Jewish Week

Scores of rabbis and Jewish youth were arrested recently as they engaged in civil disobedience to demonstrate their outrage and anguish that the United States is not doing enough to halt climate change. To the loud cry of the shofar, protesters at the White House demanded that Congress pass far-reaching climate solutions in the Build Back Better budget. In the next few weeks, as negotiations over the budget reach the endgame, we need many more Jews to make their voices heard.
