The Green Team’s diverse programs have included two interfaith discussions with members of the Christian and Muslim faiths, a tour of environmentally-sensitive sites in the Ironbound section of Newark, an eco-cruise of the Hackensack River, a program explaining how to green one’s home, a program discussing the protection of New Jersey’s Highlands and an initiative to use energy-efficient lighting throughout our building.
The Green Team’s mission is to:
1) incorporate environmental stewardship into the maintenance of the Synagogue
2) promote environmental stewardship and awareness in the Adath Shalom community and beyond
3) emphasize through religious observance and in other ways the Jewish teachings and traditions to
preserve and sustain the environment
4) promote actions that demonstrate our commitment
