SPARK 2022 – Various Educators – Care for Mother Earth
Mar 8 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Tauber SPARK 2022

Mini-University Experience

Option 3: Why it’s our Obligation to Take Care of Mother Earth (The Torah Says So)

Taught by Rachel Siegal, Dr. Barak Gale and Rabbi Dr. Shmuly Yanklowitz

Session 1: To Till and to Tend the Earth – Rachel Siegal

Join Rachel Siegal of Hazon in exploring one of Judaism’s central tenets, to till and to tend the Earth. Our interest in the environment has deep roots! We’ll look at some traditional texts together to ground ourselves in ancient wisdom, and perhaps expand our own concept of sustainability to include some radical ideas around rest, release and justice.

Session 2: The Shmita of Shmitas – Jewish and Climate Time Coincide at 100 Seconds Before Midnight – Dr. Barak Gale

Not just a routine Shmita year, no nothing like it. The Shmita of Shmitas has dreadful warnings like “Code Red for Humanity.” Word has it that understanding the science of Climate Upheaval will not extract us from this existential threat – too bad, Dr. Barak Gale loves talking thermodynamics. This session will cover Jewish values, art, poetry, ritual, stories, successes, and yes, some science as well. Barak will persuade you how fun it is to share a poem or sing, say, Olam Hesed Yibaneh, if you testify at a hearing! We look forward to hearing from you and how you engage with your gusto, your heart and your faith. Make it fun. Make it prayer. Make it Tikkun Olam.

Session 3: Ethical Kashrut – Rabbi Dr Shmuly Yanklowitz

What is the relationship between ethics and kashrut in the 21st century? What are the trends occurring now? Learn Jewish texts with Rabbi Dr. Shmuly Yanklowitz about Jewish perspectives and explore new models of Jewish activism.

Join us for In-Person Shabbat Morning Services in our Main Sanctuary along with one of our b'nei mitzvah celebrants! 

To best ensure we can provide a safe and sacred experience, please note the following:

 

  • Service will be in the Main Sanctuary. 
  • Capacity is limited to allow attendees to social distance if they are more comfortable doing so.
  • Advance registration is required. 
  • Masking (with surgical or N/KN95 masks) is required for all Emanu-El events. Because Omicron is more transmissible than previous variants, the CDC recommends taking greater precautions to avoid the coronavirus, which includes discontinuing the use of cloth masks and instead utilizing surgical or N/KN95 masks. This policy is in place regardless of vaccination status for all indoor, outdoor, on-site and off-site services and life cycle events.
  • Full vaccination status is required for those eligible when participating in our programs. Consistent with city, state, CDC and other public health authority guidance, COVID-19 vaccines are the most important and effective tool in preventing COVID-19 disease, especially severe illness and death. Per updated SFDPH guidelines, a fully vaccinated individual means:
    • The individual is two weeks past completing the full initial course of vaccines AND
    • One week past receiving a booster of any type, once eligible for a booster.
  • Please have your proof of vaccination and ID ready before approaching the front gate at Emanu-El.
  • Those ineligible for vaccination (including children under the age of 5) must be tested via PCR or rapid antigen within 72 hours of visiting Emanu-El (please be prepared to show proof of negative test upon entry).
  • All clergy have been vaccinated and are routinely tested.
  • No food or drinks will be allowed at this time.
  • Please review our COVID-19 on-site event protocols so you’ll know what to expect. We're so excited to welcome you back to into our beautiful sanctuary.
