|Sharing God's Green Earth: Planting a Green World by Engaging the Greater Community|
By David Krantz
NEW YORK (Dec. 23, 2010) — On the eve of the eve of the most widely celebrated Jewish baby's birthday ever, a holy day for billions of Christians around the world, it's important to remember that we Jews only make up about two tenths of one percent of the world's population. So if we're going to green the world, we can't do it alone. We need to engage with our brothers and sisters of all faiths.
David Krantz is the president and chairperson of the Green Zionist Alliance.
