The Emanuel Green Team is looking for specific eco-friendly stories. Do you: use recyclable bags; have an herb garden; drive an electric car; are you composting; using cloth diapers; riding your bike to school, work or to shop; are you opting for e-mail versus paper mail? We want to know what our environmentally-friendly congregants are doing to make an impact on our world. Click here to see what other Green Team Enthusiasts are doing! Please submit a short paragraph description with one picture, and Email Monique Faison Ross Chairperson, Green Team
We meet on Tuesdays and/or Thursdays at 10 a.m. – 12:00 noon. Some people come once a week, others less often. We deadhead the pansies, water the front, back, Silverman and Banks garden plantings and weed and create new areas for plantings. We are considering creating a shaded picnic area. a perennial island and another ornamental area across from the Silverman auditorium. All ideas are welcome. Please speak with Sheila Fox who will be delighted to give you a garden tour and find meaningful work for you to do.

Social Justice (B’yadeynu) Committee
The Social Action/B’Yadeynu Committee (B’Yadeynu means “in our hands”) reaches out to groups in need on local, national and international levels. The committee often partners with other committees of the synagogue and with nonprofit agencies in the community such as Foodshare and Jewish Federation Association of CT (JFACT) in an effort to help those in need in the greater community. Members have the opportunity to bring forward their own ideas and chair projects based upon their individual interests.
