Jews who are learning together and taking environmental actions, based in Silver Spring, MD
This message is long overdue, but many have asked for the powerpoint presentation that Eileen Kao delivered to the Kayamut/Sustainability Circle on June 18, 2012. The file is too large to upload directly on our Jewcology Kayamut site, but it's now available for download via dropbox at https://www.dropbox.com/s/hvhgsztggt5bb2l/Recycling-Presentation-to-Kayamut-6-18-12.ppt . You can also watch portions of Eileen's presentation at http://www.jewcology.com/content/view/Kayamut-Sustainability-Circle-June-18-2012.
Thanks to everyone, and especially Anton Goodman, for coming out to a great presentation about Israel and the environment on Monday night, May 20. We explored a specific case study: Mateh Yehuda and the challenges and opportunities related to fracking in Israel. Attached are two audio clips from Anton's talk. The video about Mateh Yehuda can be found at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JTqxZSoVMsQ.
Join us this Sunday! Bring your family and join the Kayamut/Sustainability Circle as we celebrate Lag b'Omer on April 28 at the Brookside Nature Center.
