Chizuk Amuno Congregation & Schools Sustainability

 

Solar

Chizuk Amuno Congregation & Schools is excited to be celebrating our 150th Anniversary. We have identified sustainability and environmental stewardship as one of the core tenets of our celebration as we plan for the next 150 years. We firmly believe that Tikkun Olam should be a part of our mission to ensure that the future will be better for our children in the years to come. Ensuring that our children also learn about the importance of sustainability is paramount. Now is the time to act. For these reasons, we are initiating a solar power installation on our campus. We want to demonstrate to our members, our children, and our community that we can be leaders in sustainability efforts and do our part to combat climate change. By installing a solar system, Chizuk Amuno Congregation & Schools will provide real pioneering leadership in renewable energy, creating an example for our congregation and the broader Jewish community.

Our Chizuk Amuno Congregation & Schools Community Garden -
In progress

An important goal for our synagogue and schools is sustainability; to reduce waste and keep our earth healthy for future generations. From solar panels to our new garden project, we are becoming ecologically responsible. This teaches our children to be eco-friendly and encourages the process of living in harmony with the earth.

The Garden will provide an opportunity for members of the community to literally get their hands dirty - by planting, sowing, watering, harvesting, etc. The vegetables and herbs grown in this sacred space will be used for imparting to our children and families the importance of being the best stewards of our planet through community building and sustainability efforts.

The target for having the Garden in working order is late May - just in time for the prime growing season. Volunteers are needed for:

  • physical garden labor
  • aid in gathering and borrowing materials (wheelbarrow, spade shovels, metal rakes, etc.)
  • planting, decorating, and various other tasks

If you would like to contribute to this exciting project, please be in touch with Judy Mont, 718-915-3248 or jmont@chizukamuno.org.
