AND STAY TUNED FOR ON Sunday, March 27: Hugh Carola – AKA ‘The Hackensack Riverkeeper’.  He is the longtime Program Director of a clandestine group.  He will speak online about climate change, rising sea level, its affects in our area, and what to do. 

Hackensack Riverkeeper works to protect, preserve and restore the Hackensack River from its source in Rockland County to Newark Bay where it meets the NY-NJ Harbor Estuary. Founded in 1997 by Captain Bill Sheehan, the group strives to safeguard drinking water supplies, wildlife habitats and public access through advocacy rooted in environmental education, active conservation and law.

This webinar is part of Temple Israel & JCC’s ongoing lecture series. Participation is free and everyone is welcome. You are at synagogue.org

He’s a pirate,  no, Captain Hugh! 

Hugh Carola has served as Hackensack Riverkeeper’s Program Director since January 2001. Prior to that he was Coordinator of the Hackensack Meadowlands Preservation Alliance and served ten years as president of The Fyke Nature Association. A US Coast Guard-licensed captain, Hugh conducts upwards of 150 Eco-Cruises each (normal) year aboard the 30-foot Robert H. Boyle II, one of Riverkeeper’s two pontoon boat “floating classrooms”. He also coordinates the group’s volunteer water quality monitoring team, leads its World Series of Birding team (the Hackensack RiverCreepers) and administers the Utzinger-Vellekamp Environmental Scholarship.


Located at 475 Grove Street in Ridgewood, Temple Israel & JCC offers two worship alternatives within one community: egalitarian Conservative and Reconstructionist. Service schedules and more information are available at www.synagogue.org
