Oil and gas have been dominating energy supplies since the Industrial Revolution. And while these finite resources are still holding position, thanks to climate change, renewables are now in the running to become the world’s main source of energy.


Many States in the US recently implemented tax cuts for solar panels, but it’s not widely known how it all works. Henry Goodelman, an environmentalist in the Jewish community in New York City, launched a recycling and renewable initiative called ReJews that was established in Jerusalem. 

ReJews, a 501c3 tax-exempt nonprofit recycling organization, gives homes and businesses in the Jewish community an avenue to receive tax cuts and funding when they install solar panels.


Aside from government funding and tax cuts, ReJews also help schools, synagogues, community centers, restaurants, offices and businesses establish recycling initiatives and campaigns in their buildings and neighborhoods.
