Event Description

The Forty-two Journeys of the Exodus: A Six Week Class with Rabbi David Zaslow

Many people know the major stories in the Bible of the Exodus from Egypt: the ten plagues, Pharaoh letting the Hebrew slaves go, crossing the Red Sea, and Moses receiving the Torah at Mt. Sinai. However, most people do not realize that the Israelites not only lived in the wilderness for forty years, but actually stayed at forty-two resting places, averaging over a year in each location. They also gave the locations names based on what spiritual and psychological lesson they learned in each of the places. Today the etymology of the names of the forty-two resting places can be studied and treated as a psycho-spiritual template to apply one's own life. More than two-hundred years ago the Baal Shem Tov, (literally translated to mean 'the owner of a good name') founder of Hassidism, taught that everyone stops at each of the forty-two resting places during their lives.

Rabbi David Zaslow has just completed a book about the meaning of each of the forty-two resting places, which is the first time that such a comprehensive study has been made. Zaslow will teach a six-week class, beginning Tuesday, February 17 at 7:30 p.m., in which participants will learn about this extraordinary psychological map. Rabbi David says, "If you love metaphor and etymology you will really like this class. We will delve deeply into the way that Hebrew words branch out into so many possible meanings." Pre-registration is required. Call 488-7716 to pre-register or with any questions. The class fee is $10 per session plus $25 text fee.

Ecocide Law Would Criminalize Free Enterprise | The Epoch Times

First, it was Pope Francis. Now, it is French President Emmanuel Macron. Both leaders have added their considerable moral heft in support of a radical environmentalist proposal to add the new crime of “ecocide” to the Rome Statute that outlaws genocide, ethnic cleansing, and other crimes against humanity.

Double Victory! Monsanto pesticide and GMOs just got whacked! | Center for Food Safety

We just made history! Center for Food Safety (CFS) just had one of the most important legal victories ever against pesticides and GMO crops.  After years of litigation, a Federal Court just banned Monsanto's toxic pesticide dicamba. This also effectively halts the use of GMO crops designed to tolerate that pesticide. This massive win protects farmers, our health, and hundreds of endangered species. The U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that EPA's approval of the pesticide be immediately revoked and its use stopped. This provides relief to thousands of farmers across the country whose crops have been decimated by the drift of this pesticide onto their fields. In ruling the pesticide approval unlawful, the Court cited "enormous and unprecedented damage" caused by dicamba in the last few years, damage that has "torn apart the social fabric of many farming communities." This victory took years of effort by CFS's legal and science teams and we could not have asked for a better result. We are so proud of them, and so incredibly grateful to our members and donors that enable these major victories to happen.

Billionaire Buys 15% of the Planet to Protect It | Return to Now

Since the creation of the world’s first national park, Yellowstone, in 1872, 15 percent of the earth’s lands and 7 percent of its oceans have been protected in a natural state. But some scientists have concluded that at least half the planet needs to be protected to save a large majority of plant and animal species from extinction. A multi-billionaire has pledged $1 billion to get us closer to that goal. The money will be used to “create and expand protected areas” with the goal of protecting 30 percent of the planet’s surface by 2030. The 83-year-old Swiss-born steel magnate Hansjörg Wyss — who’s now an avid outdoorsman living in Wyoming — has already donated $450 million to protect 40 million acres of land and water across the globe since the establishment of the Wyss Foundation in 1998. Wyss has also supported anti-poaching efforts, river restoration projects, African national park improvements, rails-to-trails initiatives and land conversation in his beloved adopted home, the American West.

'This Scares Me,' Says Bill McKibben as Arctic Hits 100.4°F—Hottest Temperature on Record | Common Dreams News

A small Siberian town north of the Arctic Circle reached 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit on Saturday, a figure that—if verified—would be the highest temperature reading in the region since record-keeping began in 1885. "This scares me, I have to say," environmentalist and 350.org co-founder Bill McKibben tweeted in response to news of the record-breaking reading in Verkhoyansk, where the average high temperature in June is 68°F.
