The Wilshire Boulevard Temple, Los Angeles, CA
Jewish, Reform Movement
The Wilshire Boulevard Temple kicked off its first year of “Engage the Environment” in 2004 by having an energy audit, supervised by COEJL of Southern California, to bring their 75-year old facility up to the maximum energy efficiency possible. Their education campus fully recycles, and reduced garbage by 40 percent in the first six weeks.
Congregants of all ages have partnered with the Los Angeles County’s Department of Parks to plant trees, and have worked with Heal the Bay to address the pressing environmental needs at Santa Monica Beach.
