Sinai Green (formerly Green Committee) is all about action: We're taking concrete steps every month to reduce energy, water, waste, and pollution. We started with the Temple itself, but we involve the entire Sinai community in conscious steps to reduce our footprint on the planet.
There are lots of great projects for anyone who wants to join the committee. We meet on the second Tuesday of the month at the Temple. If you want to learn more, contact Richard Hart.

Celebration of Tu B'shevat
"On the 15th day of the month of Shevat the Jewish community celebrates the holiday of Tu B'shevat, or what is commonly known as the 'New Year for the Trees'. While the Tu B'shevat Seder is meant to be a celebration of our relationship with nature, it is also a time of education and reflection; a time to look at our impact on the world around us and change the way to interact with our environment during the coming year."
