Green Team



 

 

 

 

 



Mission
The mission of the BIC Green Team is to promote the development of ecologically sustainable practices within our synagogue community.  Our intent is to use the best scientifically verified information and practices, take into account the needs of the Beth Israel Congregation, and to be informed by our rich Jewish history and tradition.

Our activities focus on:

  • Improving the energy efficiency of the synagogue buildings,
  • Optimizing recycling efforts in the synagogue, and 
  • Developing and maintaining an organic garden, the goal of which is to donate fresh produce to a local food bank.

Green Team Membership and Meetings
Our current membership includes Michael S. Simon – chair, Levana Aronson, Sarah Adler, Nancy Leon, Babette Levy, Rachel Levy, Harvey Michaels, Diane Wilson, and Martha Young.  We meet monthly on the 1st Sunday of the month from 9:30 -10:30 am.  For now, the meetings are on Zoom, and the link is provided in the synagogue's weekly newsletter. Please contact Michael Simon for further information about participating in Green Team meetings and activities.  We welcome all BIC members who have time to contribute as well as ideas about how to promote a more sustainable future for our congregation.
