"One generation goes and another generation comes, but the Earth remains forever." Kohelet 1:4

   

The Green Team is Shaare Torah’s environmental action committee. Its purpose is to help Shaare Torah use sustainable practices in all aspects of synagogue life. In addition, this committee seeks to help Shaare Torah members, as well as members of the larger community, improve their care for the environment in their homes and workplaces.

 

The mission of the Green Team is to enable our members to implement Jewish values of stewardship for the earth in our homes, local community and synagogue. 

 

The Green Team projects embody the principles of Tikkun Olam, highlighting education, action, and appreciation.

  • Converting all electricity used at the synagogue to 100% wind power 
  • Participation in Good Deeds Day, including stream clean-ups
  • Recycling programs
