Welcome to the Jewish Action Team. We are energizing the Jewish Community to take bold action on climate change.  Just as Jewish leaders played a pivotal role in the civil rights movement, we believe Jews can and will step forward today on the climate crisis.

We meet a few times a year to support one another and to hear speakers present on other climate-related Jewish/faith outreach efforts.  What can you do to move the needle forward?  Use the five levers of political will to amplify our message:
  1. Media relations
    1. Write articles and letters for local and national Jewish publications.
  2. Grassroots outreach –
    1. Give presentations at your synagogue or at your local JCC.
    2. Give a d’rash at a Shabbat service.
    3. Provide readings for your clergy related to climate change that they can use on Jewish holidays.
  3. Grasstops outreach –
    1. Work with your rabbi, cantor, and local Jewish leaders to gain support for HR763.
  4. Team development –
    1. Encourage other Jewish members of CCL to join the Jewish Action Team.
  5. Lobby your member of Congress
    1. Whether your member of Congress is Jewish or not, bring your faith, your culture, and your values to your meetings and letter writing activities.
