Shomrei Adamah – Protecting Our Environment
And God said, “Do not destroy My world, for if you do,
there will be nobody after you to make it right again.”
– Midrash Ecclesiastes Rabbah 7:13
The Shomrei Adamah – Protecting Our Environment Team is made up of congregants, clergy and staff who are committed to making climate justice and preserving the Earth core values of Shaare Emeth and to encouraging individual members and the community at large to do all that is possible to mitigate the effects of our global climate crisis. The team fulfills this mission through educational opportunities, improving Shaare Emeth’s sustainability efforts and working with other faith and grassroots efforts to advance meaningful change on a wide range of environmental issues.
