MLK Jr. and Environmental Justice: Recognizing the Tree of Knowledge in the Tree of Life

CA 94903 United States

MLK Jr. and Environmental Justice: Recognizing the Tree of Knowledge
in the Tree of Life with Dr. Cara Judea Alhadeff
(Virtual Event)

 

Registration

 

2022 will be an extraordinary year for many reasons, beginning with Tu B’Shevat and Martin Luther King Jr. Day converging on the same day!

 

Through historical storytelling, Dr. Cara Judea Alhadeff will present contemporary interconnections between MLK Jr. and the Jewish holiday of “the new year for trees.” Alhadeff will share historical events from her Sephardi book on environmental justice: Zazu Dreams: Between the Scarab and the Dung Beetle, A Cautionary Fable for the Anthropocene Era, and discuss how Dr. King’s courage and passion impact our personal lives today in the context of Rabbi Heschel, the sacred in the quotidian, and Torah, “etz chayim,” the Tree of Life. Presentation followed by Q&A.

 

A Power Through Partnership Program.
