Clean Air, Water and a Sustainable Planet: Our Inalienable Human Rights
Guest speaker Peter Shelley, Senior Counsel at the Conservation Law Foundation in Massachusetts
Peter will share some of his efforts to address the significant impact of climate change on ocean sustainability: threats to marine life, fishermen and their families, and those who live along coastal communities
This year, according to our tradition, is the sabbatical year, known as shmita. The theme for this year’s service and presentation will focus on our basic human rights to clean air and water, and our responsibility to honor the earth that sustains us.
As in prior years, we will bring texts highlighting the importance of Human Rights, and, instead of chanting the haftarah, we will read from The Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Services are from 10 to noon, followed by a Kiddush lunch and speaker.
HBT is presenting this program in fond memory of Larry M. Diamond, HBT member and former head of the Tikkun Olam committee, and with generous support from the Diamond family.
