B’nai Israel Green Team

We are excited to introduce the newest of the Tikkun Olam committees:  The B’nai Israel Green Team (BGT). Inspired by Rabbi Marion’s Rosh Hashanah sermon about letting go of ziplock bags as a metaphor for becoming more conscious consumers and making personal changes in our lives to benefit both us and our planet, we formed this committee to catalyze environmental change within the synagogue. With Rabbi Marion as our sponsor, we, Michelle Serlin and Brad Kerner, are co-chairing this committee with a three-part goal:

  1. To review daily life at the temple and help make this sacred space also a green, eco-friendly space.
  2. To learn about sustainability efforts in Bridgeport and how we can contribute to these efforts.
  3. To seek a national sustainability advocacy effort we can support as a congregation.

If you are interested in joining our committee, please email Michelle Serlin at

Make sure to check out our monthly column in the bulletin, where we’ll be sharing ideas and personal experiences related to going green. Thank you for supporting our efforts to Go Green, B’nai Israel!
