The Green Committee

Environmental Responsibility:
Caring for Our Planet

The Green Committee welcomes all who are interested in improving how we take care of the earth and each other.  As part of tikkun olam we focus on activities that change how we treat our planet - acts that connect us more with the places we inhabit, the plants and animals with whom we share these spaces and with each other.

Have questions or want to get involved? Contact Green Committee Chairperson Carla Ellern.
