Temple Sinai of Glendale is about to begin installing a solar energy system in an effort to go green. The 30-kilowatt rooftop solar panels will be unveiled at an induction ceremony at Temple Sinai on Dec. 11 at 10 a.m.

“The Jewish Federations is pleased to see our synagogues going green in a serious way,” said Mark Diamond, executive vice president of the Southern California Board of Rabbis.

The project is inspired by the Chanukah miracle of the oil lasting eight days, which can be understood as a parable about sustainability, said Temple Sinai Executive Vice President Eddy Polon.

“It is my understanding that we will be the first synagogue to install solar panels in Southern California, something we are particularly proud of.  Our hope is that we can be an inspiration to others.”
