At the Rosenthal JCC in Pleasantville, Sandy Haft, the associate executive director, said the organization is about to embark upon a solar panel installation. The JCC has already switched to energy efficient lighting and is teaching nursery school students about the environment by planting a garden.
“There’s a wonderful educational aspect to the program,” said Haft. “It’s meeting the Jewish mission of the organization. We can provide leadership. It’s important to do as a Jewish community center.”
That’s the idea, said Goldsmith. “We want our organization to be role models, and to share resources. We think this could be a model for the whole Jewish community.”
