Beth El plans Earth Day neighborhood cleanup
Earth Day has been around for almost 50 years. (The scary part is that many of us remember that first Earth Day. We were young. We were excited. We thought that we would change the world. We wore funny clothes.) While one’s impact on the world may have some limitations, the impact is far greater when one works locally.
This Earth Day, Sunday, April 22, Beth El – The Heights Synagogue (BE-THS) invites you to participate in the celebration by cleaning up the Boulevard neighborhood, of which BE-THS is part.
The end of winter inevitably leaves an abundance of trash to be picked up along the streets. This is an easy, productive and multigenerational activity that shows a visible commitment to the neighborhood.
The April 22 event will take place, rain or shine, starting at 1 p.m. Participants should meet at BE-THS, 3245 Desota Ave., wear gloves, and bring a friend or two. Documentation will be provided for students who have service-hour needs.
Robin Koslen is the social action chair at Beth El – The Heights Synagogue.
