This month as many people of faith celebrate the Season of Light, the MA Interfaith Coalition for Climate Action are watching for rays of hope coming from world leaders at the COP 21 UN Conference on Climate Change
. Whatever the result, they will find light by joining together as they continue to grow their interfaith movement and work for a clean and just energy future.
Join Them Next Monday, December 14!

New Recording of “The Tide Is Rising”
The folks at Rise Up and Sing have made a beautiful recording of Rabbi Shoshana Meira Friedman’s song “The Tide Is Rising,” performed by Annie Patterson. Rabbi Shoshana is on the MAICAA leadership team; she and her husband Yotam Schachter wrote the song this past summer and performed it at the October 12 launch “Answering the Call: An Interfaith Gathering for Climate Action.”
