Tikkun Olam and the Environment
The Green Team helps the Temple Micah community apply tikkun olam—repairing the world—to important environmental issues, such as the threat of global warming; to the greening of Temple Micah's facilities and operations; to our Jewish education; to our Jewish holiday celebrations; and to our personal actions.
