Teva Topsy-Turvy Bus

Thousands of years ago our ancestors lived with a keen awareness of their dependence on the natural systems that support life. Through their daily interactions with soil, water, and air, they developed a great respect for the Earth and sensed the presence of the Divine within all of Creation. Although many Jews today have lost this connection, our ancient relationship with nature is nevertheless reflected in Jewish law, in our prayers, in the celebration of our holidays, and in the core values of our tradition.

The Teva Topsy Turvy bus travels around the United States teaching about the environment in the context of Jewish values.  And it’s coming to Boulder!  Join us for Havdalah, a sing-along, and ice cream with the educators from the Teva Topsy-Turvy Climate Change bus.  Saturday,  February 20, at 6:15 pm, at Congregation Bonai Shalom (1527  Cherryvale  Rd.) Open to the community. AND Sunday at 1:00 at the Boulder JCC, 3800 Kalmia.

The Teva Learning Center, North America’s  foremost Jewish Environmental Education Institute,  exists to renew the ecological wisdom inherent in Judaism.  It is a non-denominational  educational service for participants from throughout the Jewish community. Working with Jewish Day Schools,  Congregational Schools, synagogues, camps and youth groups, Teva’s  programs touch the lives of 6,000 participants annually.

This event is sponsored by Boulder Tuv Ha’Aretz, an Hazon Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program with a generous grant from 18 Pomegranates. For more information or to RSVP, email boulderjewishcsa@gmail.com. Check out the video!
