This year’s 6th Annual King Tide Event was entitled, “The Seas are Rising and So are We!” Attended by close to 100 teens, parents, and activists, we are so proud of what our Sea Level Rise Solutions Group accomplished once again this year.
Held along the beautiful Hollywood intracoastal, the event began with presentations about sea level rise from climate scientist Dr. Karen Bolter, information about citywide efforts concerning climate resiliency from Mayor Josh Levy and Environmental Sustainability Coordinator Elaine Franklin, and words about Jewish advocacy and connection from our very own Rabbi Ari Plost. Attendees later visited action stations with interactive activities such as opportunities for photo documentation, trivia games, mangrove planting, letter writing and so much more. The vegan food provided by Ida Leightman, Bunny Blattner and Stephanie Joffe was also a hit.
Special thanks to our teen leaders: Rebecca and Sara Pearl Adler and Dylan and Ethan Bober who spearheaded the organization and planning of the event.
