A More Jewish Sort of Sharing: The Gift Economy and The Buy Nothing: Get Everything Plan

Presented by Rebecca Rockefeller, Co-Founder of the Buy Nothing Project & Author

Sunday, November 22nd

10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. via Zoom

 

A Presentation for All Ages, including children & teens

The Buy Nothing Project began when two friends, Rebecca Rockefeller and her friend Liesl Clark, created an experimental hyper-local gift economy on Bainbridge Island, WA, in July 2013. Since then, it has become a worldwide social movement, with groups in 30 nations.

 

Rebecca will share how to approach this year of loss and change as an opportunity to re-imagine our relationship with things and with each other. Participating in “the gift economy” allows us to support and engage with our extended communities in deeper, more equitable, and more Jewish ways while lightening our impact on the planet.

The Shomrei Adamah committee is dedicated to improving Temple Shalom’s sustainability efforts and increasing awareness of our shared and individual responsibility to honor and protect God’s creation. Our mission is to make sustainability a core value of our congregation through conservation, education, social policy, worship, leadership and action.
The Shomrei Adamah committee is inspired by the story of Genesis, where God placed Adam in the garden of Eden to till it and tend it.  Thousands of years since these words were written, we know that protecting, defending, and taking care of the Earth is our obligation as a Jewish people. God gave the Earth to all beings, and we are in partnership with God. As God is our Guardian, we are Shomrei Adamah, Guardians of the Earth.
