Israeli Sustainability Conference

Each year, Teva Ivri holds a semi-professional conference on one of its core topics of interest, with the aim of broadening awareness of the connection between Judaism and the environment among professionals in both these fields.

The 2008 and 2009 conferences broke down the field of Israeli Sustainability into four categories:
•    Community
•    Education
•    Tourism/Recreation
•    Philosophy

The 2010 conference addressed the topic “Between Community and Place” – the connection between communities and the environments in which they dwell.

The 2011 Conference (scheduled for September) will address the topic “Jewish Environmental Education” – engendering environmental responsibility in educational institutions by linking the core values of schools with their practical operation.
