Green Team

The Green Team works reducing Beth El’s collective carbon and environmental footprint and standing for environmental justice consistent with our traditions. We spearhead initiatives to:

  • Reduce fossil fuel use by our own facilities
  • Assist our congregation’s households in taking action to reduce their carbon footprint — join our Green Challenge to count your actions on the JCAN platform
  • Support advocacy and awareness efforts to advance the goals of our Climate and Sustainability Resolution in defense of Creation and a livable resilient world

Have questions on solar, composting, heat pumps, advocacy, recent laws? Contact John Harper to connect with a Green Team person.

Climate Action of the Month: Solar/Green Electricity

Each month starting in January 2022, the Green Team will profile a “green action” that Beth El members have taken to reduce their use of fossil fuels and their carbon footprint. This follows our previous theme of profiling a “Climate Mensch” each month (see archives here). If you have ideas for a green-action theme or you’d like to be featured, send your photo and a one sentence description to Linda Klein.
