This year, Shemini Atzeret falls on Shabbat, October 10, 2020 which is also the global launch of Countdown, a collaboration facilitated by the TED and Future Stewart organizations and described as “a global initiative to champion and accelerate solutions to the climate crises, turning ideas into action.” In honor of this urgent world-wide launch, several leaders and communities are coming together for a Global Climate Shabbat/Yomtov service.
