Wednesday, April 22 is the 50th celebration of Earth Day! While Earth Day activities this year are all online, it is still a great opportunity to recognize the good work happening around the globe, within the Jewish community, and right here at Har HaShem to protect the planet! Here are some resources and activities around Earth Day, and ongoing environmental actions at Har HaShem, and we encourage your participation.

  • Join Hazon and #SoundtheCall on Earth Day at 9:00 am Mountain. Join virtually from around the world as we sing songs, raise our voices, and gear up to blow hundreds of shofars together at 10:00 am. Come together for Planet Earth and a healthy vision forward. Learn more about this global campaign here. And RSVP here – you will receive the Zoom link a few days before.
  • Plant trees! Join the entire Boulder Jewish Community in a Tu B’Shvat pledge to plant 5780 trees before Rosh Hashanah! With this community pledge, we join J-Tree: Jewish organizations around the world who share a commitment to addressing climate change. Planting and protecting forests, and repairing the damage already done to them, is essential to the survival of life in this time of climate crisis. Plant trees here: https://50-million.everydayhero.com/us/jtreeWhen you make your donation  write “Boulder” in the comment box.
  • Get involved with environmental activities at Har HaShem! There are a wide range of activities happening and one of the best ways is to connect with any of them is through the Green Team. Contact Becky at threeobriens@hotmail.com to learn more. Check out this impressive list here of environmental activities at Har HaShem, past and present. As you will see, HHS has done quite a bit to improve our facility, increase learning, and make better choices for the earth.
  • Earth Day Network is the hub for all Earth Day activities locally and worldwide. Check it out to see what is happening that you can be involved with on Earth Day.
  • And some seasonal tips from Boulder County Open Space and Mountain Parks:

With schools closed and activities cancelled, it is more important than ever to get kids outside. Time outside is critical to the physical and mental well-being of our children, and ourselves!  Click Here to sign the pledge today!
