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.
News & Updates
New LED fixtures and bulbs have been installed outside the temple building and the parking lots, replacing less efficient legacy lights.
Collectively we can amplify our impact. Help us take the next step and have some fun in the process.
Over the past decade TBE has instituted a number of energy saving measures, from upgrading to LED lighting to installing solar panels on our roof.
Sustainability & Our Building
Our Beit Elohim was designed to be environmentally friendly.
The Green Team work closely with our staff to maintain the building as efficiently
as possible in terms of energy use, supplies purchased, recycling,
and grounds maintenance.
