Shomrei Adamah - Guarding the Earth

About Green Team

The Jewish value of shomrei adamah (guarding the Earth) inspires the Green Team to help make Shir Hadash a green facility and encourage our members to conserve and protect natural resources in connection with transportation, food, energy, and water use. To join the Green Team, contact board-socialaction@shirhadash.org.

The Green Team promotes carpooling to religious school, recycling in the buildings, composting food waste for the student gardens, use of green cleaning products, efficient lighting, and reusable green shopping bags. The Green Team hosts an annual green Tu B’Shvat Seder. For more information, contact Rabbi Aron.
