JOIN THIS EVENT HERE.

As global climate actions turn towards pushing major financial institutions to divest from fossil fuels, we understand that a future-oriented towards climate justice requires a transformation of how we utilize money and monetary systems. To facilitate this transition, join youth leaders at the Jewish Youth Climate Movement and Torah scholars to draw from Jewish texts and teachings about the Shmita Year (the year of land restitution and debt forgiveness) in crafting our modern economic vision out of the prescient ideas of the Jewish past.

JOIN THIS EVENT HERE.

As we wrap up an incredible few days of learning and empowerment, JYCM, Batya Levine, and Aly Halpert invite you to join us in celebrating our Jewish resilience through the joy of stepping into Shabbat!  We will reflect on the teachings of the festival with the ancient teachings of Parshat Beshalach, centering youth kavanot, and rejoice in song and experimental prayer as we transition into the strengthening spirit of Shabbat.
