On “erev” Earth Day, Rabbi Ellen Bernstein will speak on Judaism and Ecology. Known as “the birth mother of the Jewish environmental movement,” Rabbi Bernstein in 1988 founded Shomrei Adamah, Keepers of the Earth, the first national Jewish environmental organization. The author of several books, she most recently published an ecologically oriented Passover haggadah called The Promise of the Land, which you can buy from the BEKI Gift Shop. Ecologically speaking, she explains, the promise of the land is everything the earth promises, and we are dependent on all its gifts. To request the Zoom link, email office@beki.org
