in conversation with Fiona Frank:
“What’s the climate crisis got to do with me”
COP26, the United Nations Climate Summit, was planned to take place in Glasgow in November 2020. Although it has now been postponed to 2021 because of the global pandemic, there will still be a lot of online activity around the original dates of the summit, 9th to 20th November, and we plan to be involved!
Some of us are already working hard to reduce our own and our community’s carbon footprint and energy use, but others don’t yet know much about the issues involved.
SCoJeC is planning a series of events to help Jewish people and organisations here in Scotland think about what we can do to change how we travel, shop, heat and light our synagogues and our homes, and how we relate to the world as Jews.
We’ll start with the basics: what are ‘carbon emissions’ and what harm do they do? What is the ‘greenhouse effect’? Why is the melting of the polar icecap a problem? We’ll give you a chance to ask the questions that you might not have been able to ask before – then we’ll have some discussion time to think about actions we could make on our own, in our communities, and in our neighbourhoods.
Whether you’re a climate expert or a climate newbie, if this excites you, please get in touch to help us plan the process and develop this work.

What is the Holocaust?
What is the Holocaust? Who were its victims? When did it occur? What were the ghettos, and why were they established? How did the “Final Solution” evolve? Dr. David Silberklang offers a clear and concise introductory answer to these complex questions.

Music of the Holocaust
The songs that were created during the Holocaust in ghettos, camps, and partisan groups tell the stories of individuals, groups and communities in the Holocaust period and were a source of unity and comfort, and later, of documentation and remembrance.
