On October 12, we had the honor of participating in a Webinar with START Network, with the humanitarian crisis caused by the climate crisis as the main issue. For Latin America, droughts and other natural disasters have increased due to climate change, resulting in increased displacement, migration, food insecurity and deaths. Through this Webinar, local experts discussed how they are working to mitigate these crises and address some of these major problems in the humanitarian sector.

On Sunday, August 29, a reusable sanitary pad embroidery workshop was held with the goal of demystifying many conversations around menstruation. Participants received a kit that included fabric, pad mold, needle, thread and a Luna Segura coupon for 20% off their products. Luna Segura pledged to donate 1 menstrual pad for every 50 pads embroidered. Thirty women participated in the workshop, where while embroidering, they shared knowledge, stories and experiences of their lives. One of them was Gabriela Méndez, who approached the subject from the work environment, the difficulties that existed in it, the little importance given to the problems and the indifference of health insurance related to menstruation and the female reproductive system. Another woman who took part was Alejandra Acevedo, who shared her frustration of all that we had and that these shared experiences around menstruation go beyond borders. The activity concluded with the promise of each one to sew 3 towels in total, they will have until September 30 to return them in order to donate them to women in vulnerable situations.
We tend to forget that as humans we are intimately connected to the cycles our planet goes through, climatic conditions that affect what we can eat and wear, even on a physical and emotional level. A modern world, in which our roots are eroded by a myriad of comforts that take us away from our ancient and necessary biological, emotional and spiritual clock.
In the same way we forget that our Jewish tradition provides us with the possibility of connecting with the orders of the year, which, at one of its most basic levels, historically, as an indigenous culture, of a particular land, the Jewish person, aspires to have a deep relationship and understanding of the land he inhabits.
That is to say, the festivals we are familiar with have a deep and intense meaning, which can be understood from different perspectives, a multifaceted work that invites us to celebrate and confront creation, its beauty and mystery, and at the same time to be part of it, nurturing its harmony and proclaiming our connection with it.
Sukkot presents us with the opportunity to get in touch with the simplest and subtlest aspects of our humanity, to recognize the forces of time, to rejoice in its pulsations and rhythms, to share with our community and family, the bonds of friendship in joy and generosity, Sukkot is called Z ́man Simchateinu, the time of joy or rejoicing.
The holiday of Sukkot celebrates the balance between humanity and the earth; as at times we forget that in order to take care of our home we need to know, love and respect it through specific actions, creating a synergy with our ecosystem.
In CADENA we aspire to bring together these two domains, the care of our planet through awareness and co-responsibility from the personal to the community.
If we have the opportunity, the time and the capacity, let us use this moment to honor our heritage and tradition, protecting our ecological environment and the very fabric of our society.
On Sunday, August 29th, a reusable sanitary napkin embroidery workshop was held with the objective of demystifying many conversations around menstruation. Participants were given a kit that included fabric, the pad mold, needle, thread and a Luna Segura coupon for a 20% discount on their products. Luna Segura pledged to donate 1 menstrual panty for every 50 embroidered pads. On a previous forum, menstruation had been discussed from a political, medical, psychological and wellness point of view. This time we talked a bit more about the media angle and the ways in which it had transformed conversations and the general perception of it. Thirty women participated in the workshop, where while embroidering, they shared knowledge, stories and experiences from their lives.
Gabriela Méndez, one of the participants addressed the topic from the workplace environment, the difficulties that existed in it, the lack of importance given to problems and the indifference of health insurance related to menstruation and the female reproductive system.
Alejandra Acevedo, another attendee who joined us from Colombia, shared her frustration of all us had and that these shared experiences around menstruation go beyond borders. She commented that if she had had this information when she was a child, she would have had a completely different experience with her menstruation.
The activity concluded with the promise of each one to sew 3 towels in total, they will have until Sept. 30 to give them back in order to be able to donate them to women in vulnerable situations.

The Tikun Olam academic course came to an end. In “El Terreno”, an urban garden that offers a space for recreation and nature in the middle of the city, we closed the program that meant a lot to the students on their way to being humanitarians. During the closure, through seed bombs and a practical guide to changing the world, Tikun Olam graduates left inspired to make their inner and outer world much better. Thanks to the students of Peterson Schools, Colegio Israelita de México ORT, La Yavne, Colegio Hebreo Maguen David, Colegio Or Hajayim, and Colegio Hebreo Tarbut MX for allowing us to spend a whole school year together, changing minds and hearts!
