Jewish Ways to Celebrate Earth Day

By: Emily Teck  |

Earth Day is April 22, 2018, and it is a celebration of recognizing the beauty of our planet while we highlight the importance of caring for it. Earth Day is one of those (seemingly rare?) occasions during which American customs, Jewish tradition, and an opportunity to authentically benefit our global community perfectly align. It is a perfect occasion to explore the Jewish values.

Learn about each of these values and access our curated collection of resources which include a wonderful choice of children's books, songs, videos, crafts, and more: 
Sh’mirat HaTeva- Protect Nature
L’dor Vador- Connect Generations
B’al Taschit- Do Not Destroy
Tikun Olam- Repair The World

Earth Day Sameach, Emily
