Yom Ha'atzmaut: Exploring Israel's Environmental Legacy

From a small state of farmers and nation builders to becoming a leader in technology and innovation, the State of Israel has gone through much transition in just six decades. However, this growth and success has come at a cost to the land, the water and the health of the people of Israel.

 

Aytzim asks you to incorporate Israel's environment into your Yom Ha'atzmaut celebrations. The resources below will help you teach about our relationship to Israel's environment today and connect congregants of all ages — through role-playing, simulations and debates — to organizations working to help protect Israel's environmental future.

Eco-Quote

"Thus water, after having penetrated the soil, is collected in the clouds and seas; light, after having permeated the earth and brought forth the plants-these children of light-is yet concentrated in the sun, the moon and the stars; the seed, after germination in the ground, is taken from the earth to become the ripened fruit, so that the earth will have to receive in order to give again. Thus one immense bond of love, of giving and receiving, unites all beings."

- Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch
