Sustainable Living Interest Group

Sustainability is an approach to decision-making that ensures the health and well-being of present and future generations and that loves the children of all the species with whom we share the planet. Our goal in organizing this interest group is to provide a place for interested congregants to learn about the choices each of us can make in our daily lives to address climate change and other environmental issues. The Green Team merged with us so we also take on projects to enable B'nai Havurah to operate in a more sustainable manner. We see this as an aspect of the Jewish value of Tikkun Olam that involves embracing change in all aspects of how we live on this planet.

The topics we plan to study are:

  • Plastics- For more information on reducing your use of plastics, click here.
  • Food Choices
  • Landscaping
  • Stuff
  • Transportation & Travel
  • Water

Upcoming events
