JRC’s new green synagogue building was spotlighted in this nice feature from Conscious Choice Magazine last April. A few corrections though:
– We have not yet been certified by the US Green Building Council. We continue to hope for a Platinum rating and expect receive final word in a few months.
– The rubble in our gabion walls is not recycled from our old building but from other demolished buildings.
– Our building is not made of 96% recycled materials – rather, 96% of our old building was reclaimed and recycled for other uses.
