By Arthur Waskow

Coalition for the Advancement of Jewish Education (CAJE), 2001

The author offers seven Jewish values inspired goals, personal and political, that Jews should try to achieve in fight against global warming:

  • making carbon pay the true cost of its effects;
  • paying for low-carbon energy sources;
  • "green-ing" homes, congregations, businesses and other buildings;
  • reforming transportation;
  • encourage urban, high-density land use;
  • create environmental wisdom through use of Jewish and secular sources and education; and
  • observe Sabbath for Jews, and encourage restful time for neighborhood-centered celebration for people of all faiths.
