Calling all Electric Cars! Friday, December 7, 4:00-5:00 pm
BCC has been selected by Interfaith Power & Light (IPL), a non-profit dedicated to sustainable religious institutions, to host a Clean Car Showcase, to be held in BCC’s parking lot. Members are asked to drive their all-EV or Hydrogen Fuel Cell (no gas/electric hybrids please) vehicles here and participate in a one hour event, preceding our annual Chanukah services.
Join members, our clergy, other faith leaders and media to showcase alternative fuel vehicles and their role in cleaner air and resource conservation. Speakers will address shifting to EV’s for climate sustainability and to counter attempts by the current federal administration to roll back higher mileage and emissions standards, which California has had for years and upheld by the Obama administration.
An article by New Jersey Rabbi Joel Abraham, who called it a moral obligation to adopt EVs and discontinue using fossil fuel can be accessed here
If you have a 100% EV, hydrogen or other fully alternative energy 4-wheel vehicle and can participate in this cutting-edge event, or if you don’t have a vehicle but want to hear the speakers, please RSVP to Lauren.

Huh!? Wow! I am truly amazed! This is the FIRST shul that I have ever found that EMBRACES eVs! (I don’t have one as I simply cannot afford one now, but the Tesla Model-S would be my first choice! I am currently with the GGEVA (Golden Gate Electric Vehicle Assn) a part of Plug-in America in San Francisco.
I am also trying to find a way to get crowdfunding for a not-for-profit education and promotional org (ITEM) for all forms of transport electrification (land, sea, and air) plus the responsible production of electricity as for this purpose as well..
This has SOLD me on joining your shul, the oldest LGBTQ shul on the planet! Yes I am a ‘G’ of LGBTQ as well.
Now I have to find a place affordable in your area, that is clean, quiet, and safe (as well as affordable, as I have heard though not as bad as SF WLA can be rather exy as well). in your area as to live. Maybe we can work together to promote the electrification of railways in North America (and elsewhere) and other forms of transport as well.
