Send Honey for a Sweet New Year

What better way to wish family, friends and business associates a “Sweet and Healthy” New Year” than sending a jar of honey? The eight-ounce jar of delicious kosher honey arrives in time for the Rosh Hashanah holiday, decorated with a colorful label and includes a personalized card reading “L’Shana Tova-Wishing You a Healthy and Happy New Year.”
This card also lets the recipients know that a donation has been made in their honor to the Emanuel Synagogue.
The cost is $11.00 per jar, which includes shipping and handling within the U.S. Mail orders outside the U.S. are available for an additional fee.
To order honey, go to www.honeyfromtheheart.org/ESH and follow the step-by-step instructions.
Order by July 24 to avoid a $4.00 per jar shipping fee.
For more information, contact Llyn Kaimowitz, 860.231.9005, kaimo@comcast.net

Green Team Launches New Sustainability Initiatives

The Emanuel Synagogue Green Team is launching new sustainability initiatives. In an overall effort to become more sustainable, the synagogue is partnering with Hazon to receive the Hazon Seal of Sustainability.
The Green Team members will audit The Emanuel’s sustainability practices and receive training to implement three projects by the end of the calendar year.
The projects will be determined in the near future. Hazon Seal of Sustainability certifies that a Jewish organization has committed to meet a set of criteria marking it as a good world citizen with regard to its environmental practices
and impact on climate change.
The Emanuel Synagogue Board of Trustees and clergy are proud of the commitment
to sustainability and its role as a national leader in the realm of Jewish sustainability.
If you have any questions or suggestions for the Green Team, please email greenteamemanuel@gmail.com. Learn more at www.hazon.org/seal

No child (under the age of 18) is ever refused regardless of ability to pay.
