Please join us this Sunday, 4/22/18 at 10:00 a.m., for a worship service led by our Green Sanctuary Team!  Music by Will Magalio & David Milkes.

Our guest speaker is Aaron Kleinbaum, Executive Director of the Eastern Environmental Law Center (EELC).   EELC is New Jersey’s only public interest environmental law center. Aaron brings to the EELC his experience as an environmental, health/safety (EHS) & sustainability executive and lawyer with public agency, private law firm and corporate in-house experience. He is a licensed professional engineer and member of the bar in New Jersey and New York. His career grew along with major shifts in public EHS policy from command and control regulation to sustainability and environmental justice concerns. Aaron attended the Rutgers Law School–Newark and participated in the Rutgers Environmental Law Clinic.  Aaron worked at the US Environmental Protection Agency in New York City, and the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission.   Before joining EELC, Aaron served the Ingersoll Rand Company as the in-house environmental lawyer and over the years was given increasing responsibility to become the Vice President of EHS & Deputy General Counsel.
