Our May Mitzvah Morning event is bound to be fun and exciting. For the first time ever, Mitzvah Morning will be teaming up with the B’nai Israel Green Team for a community event.
We will be meeting at 10 a.m. at B’nai Israel and will work together to plant native shrubs, flowers, and bushes on the temple grounds. The goal is two-fold: to make the physical grounds of our synagogue more beautiful and appealing and to further develop the Pollinator Pathway in the Bridgeport area.
Why are Pollinator Pathways important? Pollinators (birds and insects) are critical to the natural ecosystem as they are vital to plant reproduction and play a very important role in maintaining biodiversity. Pollinators have been threatened in recent years due to overdevelopment of land and heavy use of pesticides and herbicides by homeowners and municipalities. Building and maintaining Pollinator Pathways will help ensure the health and safety of our local pollinators.
What can you do? You can do your part in keeping our ecosystem healthy and vibrant by attending May Mitzvah Morning! You will help feed the pollinators, and you will also learn a lot about the natural world that exists (literally) in our backyards.
If you have garden gloves and garden shovels, feel free to bring them. All ages are welcome.
We hope to see you there!
