COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT | REPAIR THE WORLD | SOCIAL ACTION
Climate Action/TBE Green
Ensure our building and community are environmentally sound and sustainable.
Uphold the Jewish ideals of tikkun olam (repairing the world), tzedek (justice), and bal tashchit (prohibition against wanton destruction).
We believe it is ethically imperative for Jews to work toward lessening our environmental impact. The TBE Green Team seeks to integrate our values into the operations of the TBE building. We also work to educate our community so they can implement sustainable practices in their daily lives and to engage in advocacy and education about sustainability in the broader community.
Join us and help TBE become the first synagogue to achieve the Paris Agreement goals of a 50% carbon emission reduction by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2050.
