Why climate change is a Jewish racial justice issue

 By Liya Rechtman

Originally published in the Washington Jewish Week

February marks Black History Month, an opportunity to learn about and share African-American history. Further, Black History Month is a moment to consider where we, as a Jewish and an American community, can continue pursuing racial justice in the coming year.



In the first week of Black History Month, we read Parshat Mishpatim, from the Book of Exodus. Mishpatim is the oldest stratum of Torah (famously parallel to the Code of Hammurabi). The portion expounds on the earliest Jewish laws, including how and when to set both Israelite and non-Israelite slaves free. In some ways, this is one of those sticky portions that uncomfortably remind us that our tradition was part of the historic system of slavery. However, read an alternate way, the section of Mishpatim grappling with slavery insists on treating disempowered slaves as humans, also created in the Divine Image. Mishpatim is a mandate to act with respect and dignity to all.



What does this mean in 2016? In the age of rising rates of asthma and cancer among black Americans, as well as unequal impacts of extreme weather disasters on communities of color, the fight for racial justice is multi-faceted. Climate change is a racial justice issue, and, as Jews of all colors, we must advocate for climate justice.

I am totally in cheap replica handbags love with this one. It's the Stella McCartney metallic mini waist bag. Yes, I was an 80 / 90′s child, maybe that's why when I see this wristlet I have the combined image of replica handbags the infamous fanny pack and wristlet zip pouch. I love it! During elementary school days I had a hot pink, bright yellow and neon green zip wristlet, similar to this Stella McCartney mini wristlet in function, but nothing like it when it comes to style. The replica handbags sale Silver metallic mini waist style bag bracelet is decorated with an eye-catching signature gold chunky chain link with signature emblem. The little sporty bracelet bag looks so perfect for those out-and-about days when not wanting to tote around a bag, just the right size for a few necessities.Here is another article that I came across for all you designer handbag lovers. I hate fakes, no big surprise. This is a good article by D. Parvaz for the Seattle Post Intelligencer:There are those who knowingly buy knockoffs, and those who are suckered by con artists.Those who buy knockoffs on purpose make their own deals with the devil. Carrying a fake handbag supports an illegal industry that encompasses sweatshop factories and theft of mulberry replica intellectual property. On top of all that, it's just stone cold frontin'.Indeed, counterfeit items often are purchased to satisfy a trend craving or to stick it to The Man, who thinks it's reasonable to charge hundreds – or thousands -of dollars for a bag. Shoppers may not be paying a high price for fake goods, but rest assured, someone is. The January issue of Harper's Bazaar reported on the nightmare conditions of children working in China's knockoff factories, just so Americans (currently the second-largest consumer of counterfeit goods in the world behind South Africa) can satisfy the urge to carry a status item on the cheap.For those of you who have a calm, good cat the Juicy Couture English Schoolgirl Velour Small Pet Carrier (color: New Day and Dusty Springfield) is a fabulous case for transporting your little kitten or puppy around town. I don't know if I would carry my cat around in a pet carrier, I have thought about it trying it though.
