Ms. Naomi Tsur is one of Israel’s most dedicated environmental advocates. A longtime member of the Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel (SPNI), she headed the organization’s Jerusalem Branch and later all of Israel’s SPNI urban centers, and led SPNI’s efforts to bring together eco-activists throughout the Holy City to form the Sustainable Jerusalem Coalition. All of us in the green world were both proud and hopeful when Ms. Tsur recently accepted her post as Deputy Mayor of Jerusalem.
In the following video, from JCI‘s April 5th Vayehi Or event, Ms. Tsur discusses the potential of grassroots activism, as well as the need to unite all factions within the Jewish People in fighting climate change. It was an honor to have Ms. Tsur speak at Vayehi Or, and we look forward to working with her in the future. Enjoy!
