Adamah NY is hosting two workshops on the first night of Shavuot as part of the Paul Feig z”l Tikkun Leil Shavuot at the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan 

Workshop 1: Answering the Call – Naase VeNishma and Climate Action:

When the Israelites received the Torah, they announced “Naase VeNishma,” (we will do, and we will listen). In modern Western thinking, we often seek to understand what we are committing to before making the commitment. However, we at Adamah, the largest Jewish environmental organization in North America, believe we are in a Naase VeNishma moment in terms of addressing the climate crisis. Now is the time to take definitive action, and not be immobilized by climate uncertainties. Join Dr. Shahar Sadeh, Adamah NY’s Founding Director, to learn more about how Adamah is mobilizing a Jewish response to the climate crisis and driving the implementation of climate solutions across our communities.

Workshop 2: Cheeseless Cheesecake? Baking for Change: Delicious Dishes and Climate Conversations:

This cooking session in partnership with Chef Brandy Cochrane, will blend delicious flavors with engaging conversations. As we learn how to bake a cheeseless cheesecake, we’ll explore the ethical and environmental implications of our food choices. Come discover how we can be (and eat!) the change we want to see in the world.

Workshops will occur sometime between 10pm and 5am and we would love to see you there! Actual times will be updated as it gets closer. Visit JCC for more details.
