There seems to be a new group, Jews Against Hydrofracking, which was inspired in part by the decision of NJY Camps and other summer camps to lease parts of their property to energy companies.
The coordinator of JAH is Rabbi Marla Feldman of the Union for Reform Judaism in NY. She took part in a news conference in Manhattan yesterday.
According to JAH’s fledgling web site:
[W]e are concerned about hydrofracking, the controversial method of drilling for natural gas that is expanding across the country. As you may know, several Jewish summer camps have signed leases to allow drilling on their land. The water supplies of 15 million people in the Northeast will be at risk if the Delaware River is polluted by drilling waste. Bans on hydrofracking have been proposed in New York, Pennsylvania and Ohio. Important decisions about hydrofracking will be made in the coming year. Living Waters: Jewish Sources on the Natural World (PDF), contains a number of inspiring perspectives on hydrofracking by rabbis and scholars. We encourage you to bring this issue to the attention of your community by sharing these brief reflections and speaking about hydrofracking during the High Holidays.
