Thousands of Jews Participate in People’s Climate March

— by Mirele Goldsmith

Thousands of Jews participated in the People’s Climate March, which drew more than 300,000 individuals to the streets of Manhattan on Sunday, September 21.

More than 100 Jewish groups, including The Philadelphia Jewish Voice, signed on as partner organizations, and hundreds of Jews blew the shofar, ram’s horn, traditionally sounded as a call to repentance on Rosh Hashanah.

Rabbi Arthur Waskow of The Shalom Center spoke at the rally for faith groups at the start of the march, which was timed to send a strong message to world leaders meeting for a climate summit at the U.N. this week, that people around the world want strong action to reduce emissions from fossil fuels and support a transition to clean, renewable energy.

Auburn Theological Seminary built a 26-foot long diesel-powered Noah’s Ark. Jewish representatives on board the ark included Jewish Council for Public Affairs’s Rabbi Steve Gutow, the National Council Jewish of Women’s Nancy Kaufman, and Hazon’s Nigel Savage.
