About The Event

We will delve deeply into the climate crisis and our emotions around it, and will work to welcome and accept our grief around it through a collective mourning ritual. The practice of lament is a Jewish practice of regeneration - temporarily withdrawing from the public sphere to take time as activists to grieve, rather than numb ourselves to the pain around what we are fighting for and what is already lost.

The event will be facilitated by Yael Roberts of Reform Judaism and Rabbi Daniel Lichman of the Shir Hayim Willesden Minyan Partnership and Progressive Jewish Students.

Key Information:

- All are welcome, whether or not they are fasting.

- Please arrive on time as due to the nature of the event, we will not be able to accept latecomers.

- However, if you'd like to join just for the break fast meal, feel free to join at 9:15.

- Please bring an item of clothing you are comfortable tearing and re-wearing or a piece of cloth to tear, a willingness to cry in public (or witness others in this state), and a vegan dish to share for the break fast.
