On Jan. 14, energy independence and environmentalism was the central topic for Jewish leaders and more than 100 community members at a conference at Bel Air’s Luxe Hotel. The event was co-sponsored by the American Jewish Committee, which has made energy one of its cornerstone issues, and 30 Years After, an organization promoting Iranian American Jewish participation in civic life. Sam Yebri, president of 30 Years After, explained the growing importance of energy independence to Iranian Jews. “We can’t help but see the correlation between the increase in gas prices and how emboldened these regimes become.”
