This Shabbat: A Case of Pikuah Nefesh?: A Jewish view of the
environmental justice challenges facing Israel and Berkeley

Join Justin Garland in the Library this Shabbat for a post-kiddush discussion about the environmental justice movement in Israel and the Bay Area.  Justin, the Program Coordinator for Global Community Monitor, an environmental justice non-profit based in El Cerrito, will speak about his recent work in Haifa and Berkeley.  Justin will lead a discussion about the appropriate Jewish responses to environmental atrocities, while suggesting some halachically-based solutions to today's environmental justice crises.
