Sacred RiversAs part of Climate Week, environmentalists who protect the Hudson and Jordan Rivers will join with religious leaders in New York City for an interfaith ceremony focusing on the shared risk communities and ecosystems across the globe face from climate disruption. 

A water ritual celebrating two sacred rivers, the Jordan and the Hudson, will highlight the afternoon’s events. Interfaith leaders and environmentalists will carry water from the Jordan River from the James Memorial Chapel to the Manhattan Waterfront Greenway on the Hudson River, pouring the water into the Hudson as an act of transnational solidarity. 

Speakers at the event include:

  • Karenna Gore, Director of the Center for Earth Ethics
  • Chief Dwaine Perry, Ramapough Lenape Tribe
  • Gidon Bromberg, Israeli Director, EcoPeace Middle East 
  • Yana Abu Talib, Jordanian Director, EcoPeace Middle East
  • Nada Majdalani, Palestinian Director, EcoPeace Middle East
  • Jessica Roff, Director of Advocacy and Engagement, Hudson Riverkeeper
