Beth El Temple Center's Climate Team has organized an ongoing initiative that can benefit the environment and BETC at the same time! Divert your home food scraps from the landfill; turn them into compost with weekly curbside pick-up service by Black Earth Compost. Read about the program here.
On Friday, October 23rd as part of the Social Action Shabbat Service, the fifth annual Jonathan Jacoby Tikkun Olam Awards were presented to Lori Lander, Michael Wagner, and Keegan Harkavy. The award was created in 2016 to honor long-time Temple member and now resident of California, Jonathan Jacoby. Jonathan exemplified the power that each of us has to “repair the world.” He has inspired many in the Congregation both to do more, and to do better, at the work of caring, staying involved, and making a difference in the lives of others. This year's three honorees follow in his footsteps, and serve as role models to us all. Read more about their work in the program booklet.
