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
We reviewed and commented on presentations of six research paper proposals on environmental toxins for the purpose of improving the proposals.
It is ever more urgent to do all we can as individuals and as a community to try to leave a livable planet for generations to come.
I rode my bicycle over 200 miles from Jerusalem to Eilat as part of The Israel Ride, which supports the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies.
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.
