8 Av 5782
PARASHAT DEVARIM
Deuteronomy 1:1 - 3:22

By nature, I am a hopeful person. The challenges we face can be addressed when we come together, when we see the best in one another and not the worst. I am as guilty as anyone else in being critical of others and highlighting what is going wrong as opposed to what it is going right, but that is not necessarily the best way forward.

The confluence of this week’s Torah portion, which marks the start of the fifth book of the Torah, Devarim, and Tisha B’Av, the fast day which commemorates the destruction of both Temples along with a number of other calamities that have befallen the Jewish people, invites one to look at Tisha B’Av in a different way -- possibly with more hope.

How To Save Water - 20 Easy Tips | My Own WaterIt has been hot a great deal over the summer. Water is at a premium.

However, as New Yorkers, we don’t pay for our water directly. Over the last number of years, we have come to understand the power of water as a destructive force; yet, we are made up of water and depend upon it as a life-giving source.

 

Let us use our awareness of how important water is in order to take this time to think about the many ways in which we can conserve water.

Water is a valuable limited resource that must be used efficiently in order to meet the challenge of supporting the varied and increasing water uses of New Yorkers. We use water for drinking, irrigation, producing electricity, cooking, manufacturing industrial products, cleaning, and more.

Here are a few tips:

  • Run the dishwasher and washing machine only when full. Save even more by using the short cycle.
  • Take shorter showers and save 5–7 gallons a minute
  • When taking a bath, fill the tub only halfway and save 10–15 gallons
  • Install water-saving toilets, showerheads and faucet aerators. Place a plastic bottle filled with water in your toilet tank if you cannot switch to a low-flow toilet.
  • Turn off the faucet while shaving, washing your hands or brushing your teeth. Faucets use 2–3 gallons a minute.

Why Is Caring the the Environment a Jewish Value?

In this episode of Tehillah Talks, we discuss:

  • Why the environment has lost attention
  • Learning about long-term impact
  • The way values about our land are embedded in our Jewish texts
  • How can we focus more on the communal and less on the individual
  • How can we create a sense of urgency with the environment
  • How can we make choices for the future where the environment fits in

Gardeners Needed


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Do you love to garden but don’t have a patch of earth to work with? Riverdale Yonkers Society for Ethical Culture is seeking volunteers who will help steward the land where our building sits. We’ve been removing invasives and putting in native plants to attract and support pollinators and improve the ecology of the land. 

This is an on-going project that can accommodate your schedule.

Hearing Our Children

“Hearing Our Children” is Tehillah’s COVID Time Capsule Program, a grant-funded project to  help young students reflect on their experiences from the past year. Together we have  discussed new challenges and fears that have arisen in our lives and how we would like to  overcome them. We have considered the changes to each of our daily routines and schooling.  Each student has presented on an object that has represented their year, worked on an  individual pandemic documentation packet, and will soon put together a video reflection. We  are proud to share this project with you.
