LONDON (AP) — Britain’s chief rabbi has called for a Sabbath devoted to the environment ahead of the climate talks due to be held next week in Copenhagen.

Jonathan Sacks says he wants the Sabbath beginning Friday night to be focused on environmental issues and has asked Jews across the U.K. to pray for sustainable habits of consumption and energy use.
