Local Jewish leaders call for Chase Bank to divest from fossil fuels: ‘Move your dough!’

Evanston RoundTable

Wednesday’s Climate Action Rally, hosted at Fountain Square, would have been incomplete without matzah.

Participants clutched pieces of the Jewish flatbread while demanding that Chase Bank, located across the street, divest from fossil fuels and strive for zero emissions.

The unleavened bread, which is part of the annual Seder service, symbolizes urgency, a feeling that also characterizes the need for climate action, said attendee Sally Nador, a member of Congregation Hakafa.
