Chicago Sinai Congregation is committed to Fighting Climate Change. Help us to protect our beautiful planet for ourselves and future generations by participating with the Environment Committee.
Some of the actions we’ve taken include:
- Hosted a Make Yourself More where speakers from two prominent Chicagoland environmental organizations, Mom’s Clean Air Force and Faith in Place, provided practical expertise to our congregation members on how we can reduce our carbon foot print and fight climate change, as individuals, in our communities, and at Chicago Sinai.
- Worked with Sinai’s Board of Trustees, motivated by our Jewish faith and following the lead of URJ’s environmental resolutions, and unanimously passed a Climate Change Resolution, supporting carbon pricing and other important climate change legislation by Congress in Washington, D.C. The effects of such action would minimize Climate Change and its devastating consequences, by drastically reducing fossil fuel emissions. Sinai joins hands with Jewish congregations and Muslim, Christian, and other religious congregations and organizations in an interfaith effort to fight global warming.
