Green Team

The Temple Isaiah Green Team’s mission is to establish awareness of our Jewish responsibility in regards to maintaining and healing our planet. Earth-justice requires lifestyle changes for the sake of our children, grandchildren, and all those with whom we share and bequeath this planet. 

The Green Team focuses on education and advocating for solutions to environmental issues, green activism, and creating green initiatives at Temple Isaiah and in the larger community.

  • Offering Temple Isaiah Green Team coffee mugs
  • Helping with Green Celebrations (Tu B’Shevat!)
  • Developing synergy with outside environmental groups

Other Messages from the Green Team:

BE A HERO—GO ZERO

  • Bring a reusable water bottle instead of a disposable one
  • Use reusable bags instead of plastic
  • Bring your own utensils or cloth napkins to school.
  • Think of how you can save raw material, energy and landfill space, and set an example. 

How to get involved:
We usually meet on the third Thursday of the month. For more information, contact Steve Fox, at [email protected], or 310.397.6611.
