Dayenu! Climate Action Circle

If you are connected to Or Shalom and you share our goal to bring our clear, moral Jewish voices to the struggle for climate justice, building our resilience and strength in the process, you are already part of our Dayenu Circle.

Dayenu: a Jewish call to climate action is a multi-generational movement of American Jews confronting the climate crisis with spiritual audacity and bold political action.

The Dayenu movement is allied with a number of groups and individuals that you have probably heard of: Hazon; Interfaith Power and Light; T’ruah; Bill McKibben; Rebecca Solnit; and lots of other people from rabbis to high school students.

Our Dayenu Circle works together and apart on climate actions, independent but connected to Dayenu Circles across the country, mobilizing Jewish support for climate solutions and raising up a spiritual and moral voice in response to the climate crisis.

Our Core Issues

  • Climate change is already profoundly affecting life on earth. “From island nations that are going underwater, to indigenous land being exploited for fossil fuel extraction... The fight against climate change is a fight for justice.” (350.org)

  • Overwhelming scientific consensus is that human activity is the major cause of the rapid climate change we are experiencing. And yet many of our top government officials deny human agency in climate change. The U.S. government is lagging behind the rest of the world in taking steps to curb carbon emissions—the single biggest contributor to the problem—and other greenhouse gases such as the methane from intensive animal agriculture. Clean air regulations are being rolled back, and government scientists are forbidden to even use the term “climate change” or “global warming.


Opportunities for Action 

  • Reduce your carbon footprint in your home and workplace. Eat less meat and dairy. Use sustainable modes of transportation.
  • Contribute to Youth vs Apocalypse. Or Shalomer Nadja Goldberg is a leader in this diverse Bay Area-based group of young climate justice activists.

  • Take action with Greenaction for Health and Environmental Justice, a grassroots group that works to close down polluting facilities and advocate for environmental justice in California, including San Francisco.
