Congregation Beth Israel installed solar panels on the roof of the Shirley Barish Learning Center as part of our ongoing commitment to environmental stewardship.  Another way that Congregation Beth Israel continues to improve on it's commitment to the environment was its participation as the first organization to go through the PACE process and be approved.
