Let’s Zoom! Zoom way out, that is. As we face the sixth great mass extinction, the tree of evolutionary life is teetering. Yet life plays the long game. In this session, we will explore the Tree of Life in the Garden of Eden, the Tree of Evolutionary Life and the Unetaneh Tokef prayer of the High Holidays to zoom way out on the climate crisis and find a perspective that is broader and deeper than our individual lives or even humanity. There is much awe and wonder to be found when we learn about and imagine deep time.

Rabbi Shoshana Meira Friedman serves on the faculty of Hebrew College and is a rabbinic consultant to Dayenu: A Jewish Call for Climate Action. She is a contributing author to “Rooted & Rising: Voices of Courage in a Time of Climate Crisis” (Rowman & Littlefield, 2019), and her work has appeared in The New York Times, The Huffington Post and Yes! Magazine. She co-wrote “The Tide Is Rising,” a climate anthem that has spread widely in the movement. Prior to teaching at Hebrew College, she was a congregational rabbi for five years. She is an alumna of the Wexner Graduate Fellowship, JOIN for Justice and Oberlin College, and lives in Boston with her husband and son.
