Solar Panels

Congregation Beth Israel is Austin’s oldest congregation, but we are also oriented toward Tikkun Olam (mending the world) and social justice. For many years we dreamed of cutting our carbon footprint and setting an example for the Austin faith community by going solar. In 2014, three of our members, Forrest Novy, Leon Barish and David Todd, spearheaded an effort to finally bring this dream to fruition.
