Do you know where our water comes from in northern New Jersey? How similar and different is it to Israel’s water supply? How might climate changes affect water supply here and throughout the world? Find out answers to these and other questions from Dr. Mike Passow, Congregation B’nai Israel member, Adjunct Associate Research Scientist at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, and a national leader in the field of Earth Science Education. He will discuss this year’s One Book, One Community book, Let There Be Water, and how it compares with water supply and disposal here in New Jersey. See images of our region’s water sources taken from a kayak. Kosher refreshments will be served. Location is handicap-accessible. No charge for members or non-members. All are welcome!
