WE’RE GETTING GREENER FOR GOOD
Recently, Kane Street Synagogue was selected to participate in a Jewish Greening Fellowship (JGF) for 2013–14. JGF is an 18-month environmental leadership program offered by the Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center with the support of UJA-Federation of New York. The program, which will begin in February, aims to “cultivate environmental change leadership, reduce the environmental impacts of Jewish organizations in the New York area, and generate meaningful responses to global climate change while strengthening Jewish Life.” Kane Street’s JGF will be implemented by a Staff Fellow (Rabbi Val) and a Board Fellow (Ariel Krasnow), with commitments from our Senior Leader (Rabbi Sam), and Lay leaders (our Board of Trustees). To learn more or to actively participate in the programming, please contact Rabbi Val or Ariel Krasnow.top music torrent
