Jewish Communities Support People’s Climate March & Shabbat







Join Jewish communities in support of the People’s Climate March, on Saturday April 29th, 3 Iyyar 5777, the 18th day of the Omer.

As our communities begin our journey through the Omer, from Pesach to Shavuot, and from freedom to responsibility, join us to speak out for a world safe from the ravages of climate change – a world with good jobs, clean air, and safe communities for everyone.

Want to register your Jewish community to participate, either by marching or at home? Sign up here!

People’s Climate March

Some of us will march together in DC that day, as part of a strong faith contingent, alongside justice groups and environmental organizations, in the People’s Climate March:

Solidarity Activities

Others of us will stand in solidarity with the marchers by raising up climate justice where we are, delighting in a People’s Climate Shabbat that proclaims the goodness of all Creation and affirms our responsibility to till and to guard it.
