Why We Joined

"The open and caring environment, the relaxed feel of Friday services, and weekday-only Hebrew School were the best fit for our busy family. It’s a diverse and inclusive congregation, with many interfaith families — something that is very important to us."

"Kick-Back-and-Relax" Shabbat Service

A Special Service with an Environmental Theme

Date: Friday, January 25

Time: 7:00PM

Location: Congregation B'nai Torah Sanctuary

Open to all: Bring your friends and family!

Please join us for "Kick-Back-and-Relax" Shabbat with special guest Dr. Lori Siegel. Lori is Jodi Blankstein's sister and an environmental engineer working to sustain our planet. In honor of Tu B’shvat (the birthday of the trees), Lori will be speaking about her work, and Jodi and Adam in turn will be weaving in song and prayer highlighting the theme of nature. So come to meet Jodi's sister, to learn, and of course to join in joyful music and prayer. 

Come in jeans and comfy shoes. Come to sing. Come to learn about what we all can do to sustain the planet.

A Message from Dr. Lori Siegel: World Climate

At Climate Interactive, we have published research on the impact of learning experience and found that it successfully increases people’s consciousness of climate change and their motivation to take action.  The World Climate Simulation is our role-playing exercise of the UN climate change negotiations.  It is unique in that it uses an interactive computer model to rapidly analyze the results of the mock-negotiations during the event.  Please join us to build climate change awareness and experience some of the dynamics that emerge in the UN climate negotiations.  The exercise is framed by current climate change science, using the interactive C-ROADS computer simulation which allows participants to find out how their proposed policies impact the global climate system in real-time. Like climate change itself, the World Climate Simulation crosses disciplines, delivering insights into:

  • Policies and actions needed to address climate change
  • The forces that influence national positions on a climate treaty
  • Dynamics of the climate system (including relevant feedbacks, tipping points, time delays, and social and political impacts)
  • What it will take to stay well below 2°C of global warming, or even 1.5°C
  • Psychological responses to complex problems
  • Systems thinking

On January 25, 2019 at 7PM your Cantorial Soloist, and my sister, Jodi Blankstein will lead us in an abbreviated Kick-Back-and-Relax-Shabbat service after which we will run this experience added with more prayer and song, striving for the healing of our world.  

Be part of the solution!  Tikkun olam!
