In his Sept. 26 column, “An Inconvenient Truth,” Gary Rosenblatt mentions the horns of the marchers at the Climate March but fails to note the large numbers of Jews who attended with shofarot to proclaim their commitment to protecting the planet. Of course many young Jews are aware of the Torah’s insistence that humans care for the earth. To assume their ignorance is wrong, particularly given the large number of Jewish organizations that marched.
If climate change continues unabated, Tel Aviv will be underwater, along with Manhattan. To imply that global warming is a far-off threat, and somehow less important or less “Jewish” than Israel’s security, is irresponsible. Climate change affects us all.
