Starting in 2009 the JCC began a journey to helping the environment here on Staten Island and beyond. With the installation of 2 different solar arrays and many other steps we have reduced our carbon footprint, reduced costs and partnered with many organizations here locally, nationally and world-wide.
The Jewish Greening Fellowship played a major part in our actions here. First funded by UJA Federation and now under the auspices of Hazon (the leading Jewish environmental organization in the world), this video tells that story.
Executive Director David Sorkin, JCC Camp Co-Director and Youth Director Glenn Wechsler and Agency Sustainability Officer JR Rich all speak about their roles and how the JCC of Staten Island is a shining example of commitment to a vision that will leave our children and grandchildren a better world. We are so proud!
