#SoundtheCall on the 50th Earth Day – April 22!

As we struggle through these difficult times, we look beyond the present crisis – and we call the Jewish community to #SoundtheCall on the 50th Earth Day.

Save the date: Wednesday, April 22

At 9:00 am MT join virtually from around the world as we sing songs, raise our voices, and gear up to blow the shofar at 10:00 am MT as we Sound the Call for planet Earth and a healthier, and more sustainable world for all.

Only those who RSVP will get the Zoom link.

Why are we doing this?
The shofar signifies a moment of change, a new wave of hope, a call to action, strength in the face of adversity. The shofar announces that living more sustainably on this planet is central to our Jewish life, not incidental to it. We Sound the Call for:

  • a reminder that everything we have comes from this earth
  • a reminder of the ancient wisdom of Jewish tradition
  • a celebration of planet earth
  • a call of alarm for our global climate crisis
  • a call to look back on what we have done and make changes moving forward
  • global commitments to public health and healthcare for every individual
  • global commitments to living more sustainably
  • helping those in need – personally, institutionally and governmentally
  • kindness and honesty and striving to be our best selves
  • a sense of hope for the future

How you can get involved:

  1. RSVP and show up on April 22!
  2. Share this form with your Jewish institutions and ask them to sign onto an open letter to Congress stating that we stand united for a healthier and more sustainable world for all! (Individuals can sign on by RSVPing.)
  3. Invite your friends to the Facebook event.
  4. Consider a gift to Hazon as we continue to work for a sustainable future during this time of crisis and ensure there is a platform for experiential Jewish learning, during and beyond this pandemic. This work highlights our Jewish responsibility to respond to the climate crisis.
