Jewish Camp Goes Green

Today is the first day of Eden Village Camp, a Jewish sustainable, environmentally-aware sleepaway camp 50 miles north of New York City. And while it’s a stretch to use that as an opportunity to mention how its co-directors, Yoni and Vivian Stadlin, are the co-stars of our reality series How Jews Live, well, we’re not above that sort of opportunity. Here, check out Vivian and Yoni talking the way they use prayer in their lives.

If you’re one of the lucky campers (or staff) who’s heading out to Eden Village, we salute you! And, well, what are you doing on the internet?! And if you’re not, you can still always use today to pitch in a little — read about Jewish beliefs about environmental protection on MJL, or check out this little short film that we did with Al Gore. Or just hit your own backyard and start digging.
