Co-Chaired by Tzedek Council member Joel Kassiola and Congregant Laura Pallin

The Environment Working Group aims to make the Temple’s operations carbon neutral and focuses activities on water, our precious resource amidst the state’s multi-year drought.

To get involved, please fill out the Tzedek Council Volunteer Form.

Questions? Please contact Monica Pevzner at mpevzner@emanuelsf.org (415) 751-2541 x 124



Social Justice Issue

The number of Americans who recycle grew only 1 – 2% from 2000 – 2005 and did not grow at all in 2006. 37% of the world’s cars are on American roads. 70% of the drinking water in California is used to irrigate crops.



Jewish Response to the Environment

“When God created Adam, he showed him all the trees of the Garden of Eden and said to him, “See my works, how lovely they are, how fine they are, all that I have created, I created for you. Think upon this and do not corrupt and devastate my world, for if you corrupt it, no one will come after you to put it right.” (Ecclesiastes Rabbah 7:28)

“A group of people was traveling in a boat. One of them took a drill and began to drill a hole beneath his seat. His companions said to him, Why are you doing this?” The man replied, “What concern is it of yours? I am only drilling under my own place?”  They replied to him, “But if you continue, you will flood the boat for us all!” (Midrash Leviticus Rabbah 4:6)


Actions:

Greening Our Facilities

This working group aims to make the Temple’s operations carbon neutral by building on substantial progress to date, including nearly zero-waste Temple events and meetings, reduced water use through installing sink aerators, and more efficient lighting and equipment throughout the Temple’s building. The group is working with the Temple Facilities staff and the San Francisco Department of Environment to become the City’s first house of worship to be awarded the prestigious Green Business Certification.

Preserving our precious resource: water

California is still in the middle of the state of emergency from the multi-year drought, despite the rain received from the past year’s El Nino effect. There is much more that all congregants can do at the temple, at home, and in the community regarding preserving the vital resource of water. In addition to having an information table at Friday night Shabbat services in honor of Earth Day (April 22, 2016), this working group will be organizing future activities regarding water justice and preservation so that congregants can learn more and get involved in these important efforts to improve our environment as it pertains to the broad issue of water supply.
