Green Team

CJC’s Green Team meets the second Monday of each month to discuss and plan activities that promote environmental sustainability and resilience. We aim to promote action at the individual, congregational, interfaith, state and federal levels by reducing our environmental footprint, as well as by positively influencing policy.  We collaborate with Oakland Mills Interfaith Center congregations to make our facility more environmentally sustainable, and to provide educational opportunities for ourselves and the surrounding community.  Click here to attend our monthly meetings via Zoom.

MD’s Environmental Policy Act – Pathway to Ensuring Environmental Human Rights?

Fifty years ago, the Maryland General Assembly said that you have the fundamental and inalienable right to a healthful environment. And that environmental right was to be pursued by the State as a matter of the highest priority. That never happened.

We have a chance – on this 50th anniversary of that law – to fix that.

Rabbi Nina Beth Cardin will share with us about the law (it is still there!), what happened to it, its potential and how we can reinvigorate it.

Rabbi Nina Beth Cardin founded the Maryland Campaign for Environmental Human Rights to ensure environmental health and equity for both present and future generations. Prior to that she served as the  Jewish educator of the JCC of Greater Baltimore and the Director of the Coalition on Environment and Jewish Life.
