Cartoon image of Planet Earth with text Green TeamThe MNjcc’s Green Team is a staff-led committee.  We work together with our colleagues, members and neighbours to initiate programs and services that reduce our environmental impact, and offer environmental awareness. education, and outreach. We are guided by the Jewish concept of bal tashchit (do not destroy) discouraging needless destruction and l'vadah ul'shamrah (to till and to tend) to become the Earth's stewards. Together with our community, we hope to promote environmental responsibility l’dor v’dor (from generation to generation) to maintain a healthy and sustainable future.

    I am so excited to co-chair the Green Team at the MNjcc. Its great helping to get our community engaged in environmental awareness. I love when people get excited about lowering their impact and learning how much Judaism has to say about leading a life with environmental awareness.

    I joined the MNjcc Green Team because of my commitment to shomer adamah, the Jewish belief of caring for the planet.

    As a member of the MNjcc Green Team I am reminded that change begins in small ways. I am proud to work for an organization that recognizes the profound importance of greening initiatives. Together, we can make a difference.

    I joined the Green Team because it is so important that reducing our environmental impact doesn’t just happen on an individual level, but that organizations get involved too.
