The first in a series of resources designed specifically for Conservative synagogues is now available from GreenFaith. GreenFaith, an interfaith coalition, works with houses of worship, religious schools and people of all faiths to help them become better environmental stewards. The Energy Shield program provides congregations with tools and materials to learn about the Jewish basis for responsible energy use as part of the Sustainable Synagogues Initiative – GreenFaith’s environmental initiative in partnership with the Conservative movement.
This resource describes a number of practical energy action steps for synagogues and households. By taking these actions, your congregation can earn the GreenFaith Energy Shield. To learn more go to greenfaith.org.
