Other than the media sensation of Israel’s cars going electric, a few other environmental Jew-news mishegas:
- Hazon awarded almost $84K to green projects in Israel and the States, including Adamah, Isabellah Freedman, Teva, Adventure Rabbi, AJWS, the Green Zionist Alliance, several shuls, and Israeli hunger programs.
- The Jew & The Carrot published a list of kosher organic cheeses (to go along with their existing kosher organic wine list, of course).
- Adamah farm fellowship now accepting applications for 2008!
- Teva featured in a film about America’s religious-environmental movements.
- Rabbi David Kraemer teaches at JTS on “Jewish Eating and Jewish Identity” at the Henry N. Rapaport Memorial Lecture at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, February 4, 2008.
- Palestinian alumnus of Arava Institute speaks in Kansas City on coexistance and the environment.
- The Jewish Vegetarians of North America’s new film, A Sacred Duty, is now online at YouTube. Their latest newsletter here covers a new book God Does Not Eat Meat, a vegetarian spoof of Presidential elections, and CHAI objects to Israeli horse racing.
