World Water Day 2022

World Water Day is an annual United Nations Observance that celebrates water and raises awareness of the 2 billion people currently living without access to safe water. As climate change worsens, access to safe and clean water will become more and more critical.

Our service and learning around water-justice highlights kavod ha’briyot, preciousness of each human, with deepening understanding of the value of water to individuals as well as the greater community. We need to work together to sustainably manage this precious resource. Join us in service and reflection around water access and conservation!

World Water Day Resources

Join us in conversation as we examine the agricultural, municipal and environmental impacts of water access, scarcity and control. Understanding your personal and communal connection and responsibility to water is the first step in engaging in meaningful service.

Use these resources to ground your service and discussions of water access and action in Jewish values.

Hear from a Rabbi, a Radical Hospitality service provider, a municipal wastewater plant operator, and a former EPA consultant and environmentalist. We hope their stories inspire you to serve to meet the pressing needs around water access in your community!

Any time the people that are without water are predominantly of color, we really have to start looking at it not just as environmental justice but racial injustice.
