Climate Action/TBE Green

Ensure our building and community are environmentally sound and sustainable.

Our Mission

We believe it is ethically imperative for Jews to work toward lessening our environmental impact and thus uphold the Jewish ideals of tikkun olam (repairing the world), tzedek (justice), and bal tashchit (prohibition against wanton destruction).

The TBE Green Committee seeks to:

  • Encourage integrating these values into the operations of our building.
  • Educate our community about ways to integrate these values into their daily lives.
  • Encourage working with broader outside communities in both education and
    advocacy for sustainability.

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.
