A new Congress means new opportunities for climate action. Hear directly from Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) about what Jews can do to press for tikkun olam in the 118th Congress. Whitehouse is a climate champion who has kept up a drumbeat for action on climate change with over 285 speeches to the Senate. You’ll also have an opportunity to sign up for virtual lobbying on Tu Bishvat. Join Jewish Earth Alliance for this exciting webinar!

Senator Whitehouse will be joined by climate reporter David Roberts, and Rabbi Julie Saxe-Taller of the Religious Action Center-CA, to discuss what Jews can do to press the 118th Congress to take action. Following this webinar will be an organized virtual lobbying day on Tu Bishvat. Join us!

Tu Bishvat, which began as the day observed as the birthday of cultivated trees, has now become the Jewish Earth Day. This Tu Bishvat you can advocate for climate solutions to build a safe, just and equitable world. We’re scheduling convenient virtual meetings with your members of Congress now, so register with your availability so that we know you’ll be coming.
