Next Tuesday, January 19th from 1-1:30 pm EST, the Religious Action Center will host a Tu B’shevat conference call for HUC students interested in social action and social justice advocacy. Learn how the RAC and URJ’s resources can help you prepare sermons, develop programming, and engage in advocacy. 

Tu B’shevat’s message of caring for the earth that sustains us makes this an ideal time to consider issues of climate change and energy.  Hear from speakers including the RAC’s Director, Rabbi David Saperstein, Rachel Cohen, the RAC’s Senior Legislative Assistant for energy and environment issues, and Sybil Sanchez, the Director of the Coalition on the Environment and Jewish Life (COEJL).

We realize that not all students will be able to join the call at this time. We anticipate posting a recording of the call online at

We look forward to speaking with you on Tuesday and to many more opportunities to partner with HUC!
