Carolina Jews for Justice is proud to follow the leadership of Dayenu: A Jewish Call to Climate Action to secure a just, livable and sustainable world for all people for generations to come by building a multi-generational Jewish movement that confronts the climate crisis with spiritual audacity and bold political action.
CJJ-Durham/Orange County Chapter is an active member of Interfaith Creation Care of the Triangle. ICCT was founded by members of twenty faith communities in North Carolina’s Triangle area in February, 2019. The mission of ICCT is “to work within and across communities of faith to urgently fulfill our sacred duty to love and protect Creation, address our changing climate, and ensure justice for all life.” Four ICCT action teams, comprised of members from many faith communities including Buddhist, Catholic, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim and Protestant, are working to support Creation care in faith communities by developing and providing resources in the areas of Faith & Worship, Earth Friendly Practices, Education, and Advocacy.
